Cosplay in Gender Troubles

In the early 2000’s, Butler challenged the notion of gender through transsexualism. As the so-called “Gender Theory” echoes in France, this research questions Butler’s work through cosplay. This undergoing study refers to gender studies, geek culture, in the light of CCT and uses netnography and ethnography for data collection.
