December 17, 2014 - IAS faculty member Kari Lerum published “A FemmeNist ManiPedifesto” in Cultural Studies↔Critical Methodologies.  The article is an autoethnography about the role of nail salons in relation to her evolving feminist and femme consciousness. It explores the ways that the development of her sexual and gender identities relies on women’s intimacy within and across lines of commodification, race, class, and sexuality.  It is, in her own words, “her sauciest article yet.”
