Notes

Abstract: My thesis deals with the idea that identity is primarily perceived through visual means, and that as such, it can be knowingly constructed from the ground up. I explore this theory using the television series Sex and the City as a visual text, focusing on protagonist Carrie Bradshaw. By examining her sartorial choices, interpersonal relationships, and complicated creative/creating relationship with Manhattan, I am able to deconstruct her identity into its separate components, and discuss them each in detail. In doing so, I bring to bear theories on urban movement, semiotics and feminism in the postmodern era. I used the show itself as a primary text, adding observations culled from secondary sources such as publicity materials used to promote the life experience of the show, scholarly articles written in critique of the show, and pieces from theorists of clothes, feminism, fl�nerie, and the urban experience.
