Historically the striptease has been highly stigmatized practice in our society. However, the new burlesque movement that has emerged in recent years has changed all that. Teddy Carter's research explores how burlesque has shifted categories - from sex work to performance art – thereby removing much of the stigma from the striptease.
Teddy Carter is in their second year of a Business PhD at the University of Alberta and currently lives in downtown Amiskwaciwâskahikan with their cat and several house plants. Their grandfather was a member of the Michel Band from the St. Albert region so they have quite a few relatives in the area.
