11 May Doing Sex Work: Negotiating Sexual Fields in Stripping
Danielle Antoinette Hidalgo (IHC Research Fellow)
Wednesday, May 11 / 12:30 PM
McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB
Drawing upon three years of intensive ethnographic research in both atypical and typical strip clubs in California and Oregon, Hidalgo discusses how embodied labor is negotiated in these clubs. Further, she discusses how management practices and management-dancer relations impact the work of dancers, particularly highlighting the similarities and differences between types of clubs. Finally, she ends with a candid methodological discussion of how she is conducting research on sex work and addressing the sociology of embodiment in stripping.
