Superculture Presents: 20 years ago this summer, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda first hit our screens in Darren Star's seminal romantic-drama-comedy, Sex and the City. Two decades later, a generation of TV shows, films and novels owe a debt of gratitude to a cultural landmark. This conference will take a look at the social and political impact of the show, as well as its cultural legacy, on its 20th birthday.
The morning session will feature presentations and talks on wideranging subjects, from speakers and writers with academic and journalistic backgrounds. In the afternoon, panel discussions will look at SATC's feminist legacy, it's politics, the psychogeography of the city, and, let's face it, sex. We'll also be featuring The Pilot Club, airing the very first episode of Sex and the City, along with an annotated discussion by critics.
The evening will be given over to cocktails and a quiz – the trickiest Sex and the City quiz this side of the Atlantic – with great prizes to be won and amazing cosmos to be drunk. The Book Club will be serving its legendary cocktail menu throughout and whilst this is a forum for serious cultural discussion, we'd be doing the show wrong if we didn't encourage you to listen and learn, drink in hand!
