Dr. Brooke Erin Duffy
School of Media and Communication, Temple University
The Romance of Work: Gender and Aspirational Labor in Contemporary Culture Industries

Critical scholarship investigating the modern cultural and media industries must take
seriously the gendering of digital labor. Drawing upon her recent research on the women’s
magazine, advertising, and fashion blogging industries, Dr. Duffy shows how discourses of
creative autonomy, commercialism, and community simultaneously challenge and reaffirm
social hierarchies of gender and class. Emergent forms of gendered creative production
may be understood as aspirational labor, highlighting the potential for these activities to
provide social and economic capital while keeping female content creators fully immersed
in the consumer culture.
