It was exciting to be part of an amazing panel, “Modeling Marriage: Star Couples and the Politics of Sex and Scandal in Hollywood Romance,” as part of this year’s SCMS. My co-panelists were Sumiko Higashi, Cari Beauchamp, Christina Lane, and our Chair was Giuliana Muscio. We had a great crowd with much lively discussion afterwards. My contribution to the panel was “A Fine Romance: The “Infelicitous” Marriage and Performance of Mabel Normand,” and I have included the slideshow from my talk here.
The talk contained numerous clips that you can find in the playlist below:
