The transdisciplinary series
Coding Gender in Romance Cultures offers an international forum for discussion of gender-related work in the field of Romance Cultures. The series focuses on audiovisual and digital media (film, opera, TV, internet), as privileged research fields in the negotiations of gender technologies. As products of cultural industries, media are often used to stabilize heteronormative gender models. The series research aims to render these mechanisms visible. Furthermore, the series reveals the innovative and transgressive potential of digital and audiovisual media for defining new alternative gender codes. Gender-specific and epistemological studies investigating how various media shape the body, perspective and gender constitute the pivotal point of the research interests of the series.
