Xena, Feminist Icon: Why We Still Love the Warrior Princess

Xena, Feminist Icon: Why We Still Love the Warrior Princess

Mar 02, 2018, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: WSCC 604
Language:
English

Xena began as a one-off villain on Hercules: the Legendary Journeys, and soon grew into one of the most definitive queer and feminist icons of the 1990s.  We'll discuss how the Warrior Princess is still a feminist hero, especially for queer women, and how her show carved out space for genre shows like Buffy, Lost Girl, and Wynonna Earp. We'll also get into what the heck happened with the Xena reboot, what the Xena fandom is up to these days, and why Xena and Gabrielle are still our OTP.
