Cultural Politics of Fur
Julia V. Emberley (au). Fur has been sparking controversies ever since sumptuary laws marked it as a luxury item & as a sign of medieval class privilege. Drawing on wide-ranging sources, Emberley explains how a material good has become both a symbol of wealth & sexuality, & a symptom of class, gender, & imperial antagonisms. Documents the 1980s confrontations between animal rights activists & native peoples. Shows that the fetishization of fur extends from early modern paintings & etchings to late 19th-cent. literary & psychoanalytical narratives of sexual fantasy, such as “Venus in Furs.” Contemporary ads & fashion photos & films reveal the ongoing fetishistic practices of the fashion world. Analyzes the cultural, political, material, & libidinal values ascribed to fur. Illus.
