Steve Feffer to Present on Hedwig and the Angry Inch at Midwest Popular Culture Association and American Culture Conference
Proud papa Steve Feffer is not quite ready for the minivan yet. Friday, October 3rd in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Midwest Popular Culture Association and American Culture Association Conference, Steve will present on the self-proclaimed "glam-punk musical" Hedwig and the Angry Inch as part of a panel on the erotic and performance for the conference's "subculture" focus group. Steve will be part of a panel of writers and scholars that have published in recent issues of The Journal of Popular Music Studies (his essay "'Despite All the Amputations, You Could Dance to the Rock and Roll Station': Staging Authenticity in Hedwig and the Angry Inch appeared in Volume 19, Number 3, 2007). Botched sex-change operations, the erotic and subcultures, and Cincinnati... Little Gabriel Dylan Feffer must be bursting with pride for the old man.
