Princess President? Gender, Power and the Meme-ing of Ivanka Trump, the Inaugural Lecture of Professor Maria Pramaggiore, Maynooth University Department of Media Studies will take place at 600pm on Thursday 24 October in Iontas Lecture Theatre.
This lecture examines the cultural significance of Ivanka Trump, both within the virulently partisan landscape of contemporary America and in the context of anti-democratic politics emerging globally. Tracing the origins of the Trump political dynasty to reality TV celebrity, Professor Pramaggiore analyses the way discourses of gender, race, social class and inheritance inform social media and popular culture understandings of the US president’s daughter and heiress apparent.
To attend this lecture kindly RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm Monday 21 October.
