Working Title: The Syncopeic Image: Absence of the Female
I am working on a manuscript based on my PhD at Melbourne University. Still in early stages but already sent out for consideration and a possible publisher on the horizon.
The Syncopeic Image
This image of a seemingly unconscious beautiful young white woman is a multivocal symbol that has persisted throughout the years as a representation of women. My next book will analyze and discuss this image and the way it has been used over hundreds of years to sell us goods, beliefs, attitudes and gender performance.
The Syncopeic Body in Advertising
My book will discuss how we got to this image, tracing it's use from over 2,000 years ago to advertising today.
