FEMALE NEGOTIATIONS OF AFFECT IN DOMESTIC AND PUBLIC SPACE IN THE TELEVISION SERIES THE HANDMAID’S TALE
DATA DE PUBLICAÇÃO
Abstract The screen adaptation of the 1985 novel The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood, converges with the current global turn to the right. Across different geographies and variables, there have been attempts at reinforcing the control of women’s reproductive capacity, crucial to the reproduction of capitalism, and resistance by networks of feminist movements. Such tensions bear resemblance with the concerns represented in the television show. Within the affective turn, in the present study, I examine the gaze as a gendered bodily practice of control over women as well as a practice of resistance under the guise of affect, friendship, and desire, in private and public space.
