  • Style Politics and Self-Fashioning in Mamie Garvin Fields's Lemon Swamp
           and Other Places
    • Abstract: Lemon Swamp and Other Places: A Carolina Memoir has long been a cherished, if understudied, text for specialists in African American women's history. Composed of a series of interviews Karen Fields conducted with her grandmother Mamie Garvin Fields (1888–1987) in the late 1970s, Lemon Swamp and Other Places offers readers a rare glimpse into the day-to-day activities of a young black Southerner living in the Jim Crow South. Over a series of recollections told in loosely chronological order, Mamie Garvin Fields offered information about the lives of her enslaved grandparents and parents, mused about her relationships with her childhood friends and neighbors, and described the ways the implementation of Jim Crow laws ...

Lewis, Stacey Milbern, Malcolm Shanks, Alok Vaid-Menon, and Alice Wong about the work of Sins Invalid and the relationship of beauty to disability justice.

  • Ten Principles of Disability Justice
    • Abstract: From within Sins Invalid, where we incubate both the framework and practice of Disability Justice, this burgeoning framework has ten (10) principles, each offering new opportunities for movement builders:We know that each person has multiple identities, and that each identity can be a site of privilege or oppression. The mechanical workings of oppression and how they output shift depending upon the characteristics of any given institutional or interpersonal interaction; the very experience of disability itself is being shaped by race, gender, class, gender expression, historical moment, relationship to colonization, and more.We know ableism exists in the context of other historical systemic oppressions. We know to ... Read More

  • Putting a "Good Face on the Nation": Beauty, Memes, and the Gendered

    • Abstract: On December 20, 2015, U.S. comedian and host Steve Harvey erroneously crowned Colombia's Ariadna Gutiérrez-Arévalo Miss Universe on live television. Within minutes of his error—the winner was Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach of the Philippines—Harvey tweeted, "I want to apologize emphatically to Miss Philippians [sic] and Miss Columbia [sic]. This was a terribly honest human mistake and I am so regretful." Twitter users quickly responded not only to Harvey's initial error but also his subsequent misspelling of Colombia; among them were Colombians around the world employing #ItsColombiaNOTColumbia (#ICNC). While this particular hashtag has been in circulation since 2013, Harvey's misspelled apology provoked a more vehement ... Read More

  • Disability Justice and Beauty as a Liberatory Practice
    • Abstract: I have a firm and persistent belief—perhaps it is even a conviction, rooted in and in alignment with my vision for collective liberation—that all people hold the capacity to conceive of and experience beauty in a manner that well transcends that which we are conditioned into recognizing as beautiful by normative, twenty-first-century, United States societal standards. I posit that there exists a type of phenomenological overlay or precursor to the highly disciplined and disciplining modes of beauty that operate to glorify and legitimize the institutionalization and embodiment of white christian supremacist, ableist, heteropatriarchal, settler-colonial capitalism. This phenomenological process is "beauty as a thing ... Read More

The Collective offers the formulation "smart-ugly" to articulate recognition and marginality as deeply racialized, gendered, and sexualized (2000, 268). Taking the body as central to social interpretation from the standpoint of black lesbian positionality, smart-ugly serves as an ... Read More

  • Controlling Beauty Ideals: Caribbean Women, Thick Bodies, and White
           Supremacist Discourse
    • Abstract: During the European colonial period, travel writers in Africa drew on and contributed to a European discourse of black womanhood that ascribed a big body to all black women and used it as a signifier of otherness, their inferior phenotype, and lesser culture and intelligence. The depiction of colonized black women in these writings represented them as having monstrous, "unwomanly" bodies that were not beautiful and admired as were the delicate bodies of their white counterparts. Perhaps the most iconic figure in this regard is that of Saartjie Baartman, the so-called "Hottentot Venus." Baartman, a South African slave, was brought to Europe in 1810 for the purposes of displaying her enlarged—by colonial ... Read More

  • Note from the Board
    • Abstract: Elena Glasberg and Elizabeth Wissinger Beauty is a killer. It hurts. That is the consensus of the authors collected here. It hurts to be beautiful. And it hurts even more not to be beautiful. This conundrum may explain why the conversation around beauty keeps lingering: the more you critique beauty, the more its mask, its allure, becomes real. If beauty is the hazy cultural fantasy that has real consequences, insisting on its materiality and on the materiality of the female body might kill beauty—before it gets you. But do the authors in this issue want to kill beauty, really' No. Because, for them, beauty is a real, and necessary, enemy.Beauty is a cultural ideal suited for humanities; a measurable (if highly ...

  • Introduction: Revisiting Beauty
    • Abstract: As Central America's smallest, but most densely populated country, El Salvador sits at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. In some ways, El Salvador is a progressive nation following its civil war (1979–1992), spurred by military repression and income equality. For example, despite its small geographic size and poverty, El Salvador is internationally known for refusing to accept Monsanto's genetically modified seeds (Malkin 2014). Monsanto, a large and powerful corporation based in the United States, holds a monopoly over seeds sold to farmers throughout the globe. However, El Salvador is also the most violent nation in the Western hemisphere (Data Team 2017) fueled by political corruption, economic depression (partly ... Read More

  • Dying to Be Beautiful: (Re)Membering the Women of Juárez, the
           Commodification of Death, and the Nonuniversal Standards of Beauty
    • Abstract: In 2010 MAC Cosmetics, owned by Estée Lauder, teamed up with Rodarte, a small fashion house in Los Angeles, California. Rodarte was founded in 2005 by Kate and Laura Mulleavy and is known by most in the fashion and beauty industry as a "mixture of high couture, modern femininity, and Californian influences" (Shapovalova 2015). However, as Nicole Phelps describes in an online article for Vogue, in 2010 they could not find much Californian inspiration and instead took a trip to the border of El Paso, Texas, and Juárez, México, to gain "inspiration" from the "ethereal" desert landscape. After the Mulleavy sisters returned from their road trip they collaborated with MAC Cosmetics on a makeup line that would coincide ... Read More

  • Remnants of Venus: Signifying Black Beauty and Sexuality
    • Abstract: When Vogue proclaimed the "Era of the Big Booty" in 2014, they seemed more than a few decades late. After all, the big booty had amassed praise and celebration since the inception of such musical genres as funk and hiphop—think The Commodore's "Brick House" (1977) and 2 Live Crew's controversial As Nasty as They Wanna Be album cover (1989). Indeed, as Tricia Rose notes, "the black behind has an especially charged place … [in] black sexual expression," that precedes funk and hip-hop, although the increased popularity of the latter gave this body part more centrality in the culture at large (1994, 167–68). However, we would not know this from the Vogue article (Garcia 2014), given the focus on mostly white and Latina ... Read More

  • Reclaiming and Honoring: Sins Invalid's Cultivation of Crip Beauty
    • Abstract: Beauty can be expansive and rhythmic. Its standards can shift, stretching outward to include and honor all of our "bodyminds." I stress can here because beauty is still imbued with overwhelming power and privilege. Despite our current feminist landscape of plurality and intersectionality, for most of us, beauty is still a place of restricted access and pain. There are so many people, myself included, who struggle to actively rewrite the toxic hold beauty has own our own lives. At the same time, this struggle is supported by our communities who work in earnest to help us unlearn the connotations of heteropatriarchy and whiteness that rigidly define and discipline beauty's borders. The collective work of the body ... Read More

  • A Fair Face: An excerpt from the novel-in-progress "People We Trust"
    • Abstract: Their eyes rested on Paulette as she chased the other children across her parents' lawn, framing her within the limitations of a single word: beautiful. It was a term of endearment that could mean anything, but for her mother, beautiful meant clothes for her daughter that accentuated her creamy, freckled skin tone, dresses with little yellow flowers that brought out her natural glow as she marched past the tables of adoring relatives and family friends. Beautiful meant shoes with tiny heels that turned her walk into an assertive little strut, meant bobby pins that kept her curls shapely and full till evening. It meant fingernails that weren't chewed on, but were filed and painted once she was old enough to wear ... Read More

  • On Beauty and Protest
    • Abstract: For feminist politics, the question of beauty is a complicated web of notions of femininity, desire, sexuality, and power. Beauty has long been used to reinforce hierarchies, sexism, and racism. What is the relationship between beauty and social protest' What are the uses of beauty' On October 29, 2017, the contestants of the Miss Peru beauty pageant stunned the audience when rather than giving their measurements as is customary in many beauty pageants, they shared alarming statistics of violence against women in Peru.1 The women revealed figures such as: "Mi nombre es Camila Canicoba y represento a Lima, mis medidas son 2,202 casos de feminicidio reportado en los últimos nueve años en mi país"; "Mi nombre es ...

  • Fashioning Identity Work: The Perils, Politics, and Pleasures of Aesthetic
           Labor
    • Abstract: One of the conceits of the fashion industry is its traditionalism and hostility toward change. Bloggers, for the most part, bear the brunt of fashion editors' and journalists' ire and reluctance to adapt to the industry's digital coming of age. One illustrative example comes from a recent article on Vogue.com where several editors reviewed Milan's Spring/Summer 2017 runway collections, but not before the conversation briefly devolved into bizarre asides and invectives directed against bloggers. Sally Singer, creative digital director, went so far as to literally spell out the ill will, "Note to bloggers who change head-to-toe, paid-to-wear outfits every hour: Please Stop. Find another business. You are heralding ... Read More

  • Picture Perfect: Lessons in the War for Self-Love
    • Abstract: "The CEO doesn't like your picture. He wants you to take another one," my female supervisor told me with a hint of apology in her voice.It was the second time my photo was found wanting.I had just started as the Equal Employment Opportunity Officer at a local hospital. I was responsible for investigating employment discrimination complaints and required to post my picture and contact information throughout the hospital so employees would know where to find me.

I was a barefaced twentysomething and my straight black hair fell to my shoulders. I flashed ... Read More

           Women'sFutebol Feminino
    • Abstract: Two photographs of the Brazilian women's national soccer team, taken sixteen years apart, reveal an important shift in futebol feminino.1 The first photo, taken in 1996 in Atlanta, Georgia, marks the debut appearance of women's soccer at the Olympics. In this image, six players stand in the back row, while in the front row, five players kneel on one knee in a pose common to men's soccer team photos.

  • Toward a Phenomenological Analysis of Historicized Beauty Practices
    • Abstract: Public critiques of the unrealistic feminine beauty ideal exploded during the 1968 Miss America pageant. That year, the NAACP staged what the organization termed a "positive protest" against the whiteness of Miss America by organizing the first Miss Black America contest, which was held in Atlantic City just blocks away from the Miss America pageant. For two decades, the NAACP had fought for the inclusion of African Americans in beauty pageants, which had traditionally excluded nonwhites from participation. Some, like Miss America, officially barred women of color from participation, as illustrated through the organization's infamous rule number seven stipulating that contestants were "of the white race." Although ... Read More

Foundation is made "with the powdered ashes of Susan B. Anthony" and there is "Lean In mascara, courtesy of Sheryl Sandberg." tadelesmith thereby suggests that women are produced from their feminist foremothers and feminist critiques. In a ... Read More
