Marcia Ochoa: “La moda nace en Paris y muere en Caracas”: Fashion, Beauty and Consumption on the (Trans) National

Professor Ochoa works at the conjuncture of the ethnography of media, modernity in Latin America, and queer/transgender studies. Queen for a Day: Transformistas, Misses and Mass Media in Venezuela (Duke, forthcoming) is a queer diasporic ethnography of femininity, spectacle, and nation in Venezuela.

Marcia Ochoa is Assistant Professor of Community Studies at UCSC.
