摘要: 本論文以陰性書寫的觀點來探討女神卡卡對於女性身體的重建與再現。旨在於了解女神卡卡如何在其音樂展演中展現女性身體的流動性與多重性,並藉由女神卡卡的例子,進而證明陰性書寫的可實性;另一方面,探討此女性身體流動、多重的展現解構父權主義下的二元對立,並挑戰性、性別、種族與階級的限制。   本論文共分為四章。第一章為緒論,包括陰性書寫理論,以及略述女神卡卡的背景與另外兩位具爭議性女性,瑪丹娜與梅蕙絲的關係。第二章為女神卡卡歌詞的文本式分析,並討論其歌詞中陰性書寫的實踐。第三章著重於女神卡卡的女性身體表現,從音樂錄影帶、服裝,以及現場表演來作分析。第四章是結論,總結全文重點,點出為何女神卡卡,相較於瑪丹娜與梅蕙絲,更能代表陰性書寫的實踐,兼論女神卡卡身為一位具有自我意識的女性主義者與社會運動者對社會的貢獻。
This thesis applies the concept of écriture féminine to explore Lady Gaga’s representation and reconstruction of the female body. I argue that Lady Gaga uses her body to exemplify the fluidity and plurality of the female body. Although écriture féminine, espoused by French feminists, is questioned and disapproved for being idealist and essentialist, I believe, with the example of Lady Gaga, the concept of écriture féminine will prove to be feasible. In addition, Lady Gaga’s demonstration of the fluidity and plurality of the female body deconstructs any kind of binary oppositions and pushes the boundaries not only about gender, sexuality, but also about race and class. This thesis is divided into four chapters. The first chapter theorizes the idea of écriture féminine and provides the introduction of the three transgressive female figures, Mae West, Madonna, and Lady Gaga. The second chapter offers a textual analysis of Lady Gaga’s song lyrics. I elaborate on the relation between Lady Gaga’s sexuality and speech to the practice of écriture féminine. The third centers on the representations of the female body in Lady Gaga’s music videos, her costumes in terms of the grotesque with regard to the female body, and her performances. I analyze the narratives in her music videos and examine the ways in which she employs the female body as a vehicle to circumvent the masculinist discourse and empower others. Lastly, the concluding chapter offers a comparison and contrast among Mae West, Madonna and Lady Gaga to explain why Lady Gaga employs the strategy of écriture féminine and look into the role of Lady Gaga as a social activist.
