The Use Of Reality Television And Social Media By Mormon Fundamentalist Groups. Changing Representations, Minds, And Laws., Mathilde Vanasse-Pelletier

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

This presentation will describe the interactions between religious fundamentalisms, in this case in the form of polygamous Mormon culture, and information technology. We will also discuss the way that the various information transmission strategies used by advocates of plural marriage can lead to effective changes in laws and public policies by presenting the case of the prosecution of the Brown family, stars of Sister Wives, by the State of Utah.


The Self-(Un)Made Mother: Jungian Archetypes In Dickens's Little Dorrit, William David Love Jr 2015 University of Southern Mississippi

The Self-(Un)Made Mother: Jungian Archetypes In Dickens's Little Dorrit, William David Love Jr

Master's Theses

Charles Dickens’s novel Little Dorrit (1857) depicts an abundance of surrogate mothers while simultaneously revealing an absence of biological motherhood. The primary female characters become surrogate mothers in their own ways in order to bypass the legal and physical dangers associated with biological motherhood. To do this, they embrace various alternate forms of femininity—the crone, the maiden, the woman warrior, and the seductress. These women negate themselves willingly in actions that would seem to reinforce the gender norms of their time, but their self-negation actually leads to empowerment and sustainability for themselves and for others. Furthermore, a Jungian ...

The Portrayal Of Lgbt In The Media, Julia J. Salem

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

My senior project examines the portrayal of LGBT people in the media. The purpose of this research is to show how the media’s portrayal of lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgendered people (LGBT) affects individuals and society as a whole. The research will explore the history of the LGBT community’s relationship with the media from the 1920s to the present, with emphasis on the Stonewall Riots as the beginning of an organized LGBT movement. The research will focus on films, television programs, and press articles for their depiction of LGBT’s and the issues impacting their lives. I will ...

“I Love Lucy” Gender Analysis And Its Influence On Popularity And Longevity, Brianna Knoll 2015 Dominican University of California

“I Love Lucy” Gender Analysis And Its Influence On Popularity And Longevity, Brianna Knoll

Scholarly and Creative Works Conference

This thesis takes an analytical approach to examine the television show I Love Lucy. The contributing factors to the show’s continued success are considered, including Lucille Ball’s comedic style, domesticity and the role of housewives, marital relations, pregnancy on television, and the larger gender representations with a subtopic of social norms. Upon studying the above aspects of I Love Lucy, it is clear that each topic played an essential role in the success of the show. Ball’s comedic style combined with her portrayal of a 1950s housewife, and the social norms that she and her co-stars broke ...


Between Historical Truth And Story-Telling: The Twentieth-Century Fabrication Of “Artemisia”, Britiany Daugherty 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Between Historical Truth And Story-Telling: The Twentieth-Century Fabrication Of “Artemisia”, Britiany Daugherty

Theses, Dissertations, and Student Creative Activity, Department of Art and Art History

This research focuses on the twentieth century rediscovery of the seventeenth-century Italian painter Artemisia Gentileschi by scholars, novelists, playwrights, filmmakers, and artists. I argue that the various authors who told her story constructed two distinct “Artemisias,” what I identify as the “Academic Artemisia” and the “Celebrity Artemisia.” The “Academic Artemisia” results from writings by scholars focused on her 1610 Susanna and the Elders, who used approaches from formalism and connoisseurship, to feminism and iconography. The “Celebrity Artemisia” stems from popular fictions that refashioned the life and art of Artemisia according to pop culture tastes. Studying what has been said about ...


Barriers To Access: An Analysis Of Obstacles To Obtaining Services For Bosnian Immigrant Victims/Survivors Of Intimate Partner Violence In St. Louis, Christy N. Marx 2015 Washington University in St Louis

Barriers To Access: An Analysis Of Obstacles To Obtaining Services For Bosnian Immigrant Victims/Survivors Of Intimate Partner Violence In St. Louis, Christy N. Marx

Undergraduate Research Symposium Posters & Abstracts

Research shows that immigrants and refugees experience intimate partner violence in different ways and at higher rates than those from other populations. These victims also face many barriers to accessing support services that are in place for survivors of intimate partner violence, such as language barriers, lack of knowledge of the United States legal system, and distrust of police. In St. Louis, Bosnians currently make up approximately five percent of the city’s population, yet they represent an even smaller percentage of people attempting to utilize services available to assist survivors of intimate partner violence, such as transitional housing, orders ...


Understanding Malagasy Women's Preferences For Reproductive Health Care, Mackenzie Findlay 2015 Washington University in St Louis

Understanding Malagasy Women's Preferences For Reproductive Health Care, Mackenzie Findlay

Undergraduate Research Symposium Posters & Abstracts

In rural Madagascar, women seeking reproductive health care may have the option of consulting their traditional birth attendant, local midwife or biomedical physician. In those cases in which a woman does have a choice, our understandings of how she makes that decision is limited. In my research, I investigate women’s perspectives on the health care options available to them and seek to understand the factors that influence their decision to choose a particular type of care. I seek not to validate biomedical care and critique traditional practices; rather, I seek to understand the interplay between cultural traditions and the ...

“There Is A Stubbornness About Me That Never Can Bear To Be Frightened At The Will Of Others”: Constructions Of Beatrice And Elizabeth As The Witty Woman, Tess A. Henthorne 2015 The College of Wooster

“There Is A Stubbornness About Me That Never Can Bear To Be Frightened At The Will Of Others”: Constructions Of Beatrice And Elizabeth As The Witty Woman, Tess A. Henthorne

Black & Gold

The ultimate trajectories of characters in literature are often quite similar despite their existence in differing social, cultural, and historical environments. To this end, the following essay will examine Beatrice from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and Elizabeth Bennet from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice as related archetypal female heroines. Both women display a similar basic character structure: each proves to be witty, intelligent, and feisty, actively diverging from the passive model female character created by respective female counterparts. Beatrice and Elizabeth are also continuously coupled with a masculine counterpart throughout the texts, and are arguably driven by ...


Still A Rivalry: Contrasting Renaissance Sodomy Legislation In Florence And Venice, Nicolaus J. Hajek 2015 The College of Wooster

Still A Rivalry: Contrasting Renaissance Sodomy Legislation In Florence And Venice, Nicolaus J. Hajek

Black & Gold

The article focuses on comparing the functions of two institutions that castigated sodomy in Renaissance Italy: Florence’s the Office of the Night, and Venice’s Council of Ten. The author analyzes court cases from both Renaissance institutions as well as other first hand accounts of the culture of male sodomy in the region, explaining that Florence’s persecution of homosexual behavior was a secular tool to check the power of any political threat, while Venitian persecution originated from a theological mandate to save sinners from relinquishing their eternal salvation.

Tributo A El Largo Adiós De Raymond Chandler En El Bandido Doblemente Armado De Soledad Puértolas, Paloma Pérez Valdés

Books/Book Chapters

En este artículo se analiza cómo en El bandido doblemente armado de Soledad Puétolas se hace un tributo a El largo adiós de Raymond Chandler.

Marlowe aparecía en El largo adiós como el verdadero protagonista que nos muestra su visión de la realidad más que nunca, permitiéndonos un mayor conocimiento de su interior. Del mismo modo, el narrador de El bandido doblemente armado, consigue una identidad propia al hacer que los encuentros y desencuetros con los otros personajes trasciendan.

El segundo personaje principal en las dos novelas tiene el mismo nombre, Terry Lennox. Si la similitud de los narradores es ...

Blurred Lines: Gender In Advertising, Leah Kind 2015 Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

Blurred Lines: Gender In Advertising, Leah Kind

Other Voices

By the time they reach high school, students have been so deluged by both media and advertising messages that they may have become somewhat immune to them. Looking at ads under a focus of gender studies can illuminate the ways that many of the messages and themes challenge, support, or prolong certain established gender norms. Students will examine images from two ad campaigns, either from a 2014 Nine West campaign, or a 2011 Christian Louboutin campaign (both featuring women’s shoes), and discuss how the image contributes to, defies, or introduces new gender roles. Both of these ad campaigns feature ...
