Salander/Blomkvist: Challenging Stereotypes

Produced by Have Art Will Travel: for Gender Justice, a project of Artist Linda Stein, this intergenerational panel will highlight the two main characters from Stieg Larsson’s The Millennium Trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest) and the subsequent Swedish movies based on these books.

Linda Stein will introduce the discussion with movie clips revealing how Salander and Blomkvist shake up stereotypic gender roles. The panelists will  focus on current trends in gender fluidity as related to the attitude of young women today: Shelby Knox; a new prototype for masculinity: Michael Kimmel; men’s  attitudes toward current sexual abuse allegations (Dominique Strauss-Kahn vs. the hotel housekeeper and policemen vs. the inebriated woman): Jimmie Briggs. A Q&A will follow.
