Permutations of Subjectivity in the Televisual Age of Sex and Race: Eva Longoria, Severo Sarduy, Veruschka, Camouflage, and More

I am doing some preparation for a week on the writings of Severo Sarduy in my graduate seminar, an introduction to cultural studies. One of the moves I am going to try is to move in time from Veruschka to Eva Longoria, with specific regard to issues of identity, representation, camouflage, and transvestism. To your right appears a montage of shots of Eva by Ruven Afandador, disguised, from fashion magazine Citizen K; below, a photograph by Franco Rubarteli of Veruschka from Playboy, 1971. More to come.
