Jorge Sandoval THE THEATRICALITY OF THE EVERYDAY THROUGH COSTUME EXPRESSIONS OF FANDOM AND DRAG

100471

Jorge Sandoval's article-based dissertation, comprising six published research texts, investigates the ways the male costumed body performs theatricality in non-theatre settings. It does so by looking at costume as a means of expressing non-normative gender, researched through two distinct perspectives: the costume expressions of fandom and drag. More specifically, the dissertation uses as cases studies: (i) the regalia of fans of the Canadian football team the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and (ii) drag display in both professional and amateur situations in Canada and Finland.

 
Sandoval's research draws from theories such as Peter Boenisch's (2012) concept of relational dramaturgy, Alan Read's (1993) concept of theatricality and the ambit of the everyday, John R. Suler's (2016) idea of performance and identity in social media, Eric Anderson's (2005) and Amir-Ben Porat's (2010) research on masculinities and fandom in sports, and Rachel Hann's (2017) concept of normative dress and conscious othering. These voices inform my understanding of the theatrical and emblematic potentialities of the costumed material body in real life and the immaterial body in virtual spaces, through acts of 'costuming' the self.
