Example text

By positioning Tracee’s murder at the intersection of sexism and classism in this way, the episode exposes the cold and calculating ideological construction work behind the bourgeois family, returning to the critical Marxist connection between “family as haven” and “heartless world” (Lasch ). One necessitates the other – the “brutal world of commerce” creates our need for an emotionally supportive retreat within the family – and the Soprano dinner party shows the precise conceptual sites where haven borders on heartless.

The texts as well bear responsibility for this crisis, given the nature of media imagery “as a field of contestation with forces of domination and resistance, repression and struggle, co-optation and upheaval,” as Douglas Kellner describes contemporary media culture (). A tight weave of competing political energies – feminist, antifeminist, and pseudo-feminist – riddles recent films and cable series. It is within the context of these debates over how to read gendered violence in media culture that I wish to situate my reading of episode  of The Sopranos, “University,” in which Ralphie, a disgruntled Sopranos crew member, brutally murders his pregnant girlfriend, Tracee, a stripper at the Bada Bing!

Through strategic editing, “University” echoes this insight, repeatedly collapsing the violence of strip club spaces against the performed comfort of home life to underscore the continuities between stigmatized and socially sanctioned arenas, asserting that they are not as separate or opposite as our symbolic register suggests. , Silvio slaps Tracee and slams her down on the hood of his car after she misses three days of work, as Ralphie laughs vindictively from the window of his house. The scene change uses his laughter as its transitional element, melding seamlessly into laughter at the family dinner table with his high-status mob-widow girlfriend, Rosalie Aprile, and their guests.
