Diane Di Prima: A Beat Poet?, Shelby K. Miller 2018 Lynchburg College

Diane Di Prima: A Beat Poet?, Shelby K. Miller

Student Scholar Showcase

The Beat Poets were a group of men who wrote counterculture poetry that committed on society. They embraced themes of open sexuality, Buddhism and Eastern religions, and activism. Diane di Prima, called by most literary scholars but not by her contemporaries, was one of those Beat Poets who embraced those themes. Her focus on motherhood and female empowerment is what caused her contemporaries to reject her as an equal. A second focus will the continued rejection of di Prima from the literary canon.


Not All Art Belongs In The Living Room: The Tale Of Robert Mapplethorpe, Shelby K. Miller 2018 Lynchburg College

Not All Art Belongs In The Living Room: The Tale Of Robert Mapplethorpe, Shelby K. Miller

Student Scholar Showcase

Following the death of Robert Mapplethorpe in 1989, a group of scholars put together a retrospective exhibition of his life’s work with the help of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The subject matter, namely those in Mapplethorpe’s X and Z portfolios that included male nudes and depictions of sadomasochism, caused major controversy across the country. The presentation will cover Helms Amendment of 1990 and the obscenity trial that took place in Cincinnati in 1990 with a specific focus on the lasting impacts that these events have had on the NEA and the art world.


Adding Fuel To The Fire: Sexual Harassment And Male Chauvinism On Tinder, Sarah E. Irby 2018 Lynchburg College

Adding Fuel To The Fire: Sexual Harassment And Male Chauvinism On Tinder, Sarah E. Irby

Student Scholar Showcase

Abstract

Since its inception in 2012, the dating app Tinder has become notorious for its hookup culture. It has also garnered much attention for instances of sexual harassment and inappropriate male behavior toward women, with the rise of Instagram pages that exploit this behavior. With an increasing number of people using this platform to meet potential partners, it is important to understand why people communicate in the ways they do. This paper explores patterns among male interactions with women on Tinder in regard to sexual harassment and male chauvinism. To conduct this study, I examined screenshots of Tinder conversations that ...


La Adaptación Afro-Futurística Y El Placer Como Supervivencia En "Los Pueblos Silenciosos" De Elena Palacios Ramé, Samuel Ginsburg 2018 University of Texas, Austin

La Adaptación Afro-Futurística Y El Placer Como Supervivencia En "Los Pueblos Silenciosos" De Elena Palacios Ramé, Samuel Ginsburg

Alambique: Revista académica de ciencia ficción y fantasia / Jornal acadêmico de ficção científica e fantasía

In “The Silent Towns,” from the 1950 collection The Martian Chronicles, Ray Bradbury tells the story of the last man and woman left on Mars. While Walter has romanticized visions of a perfect match, he is ultimately disappointed by Genevieve’s and chooses to live out his life alone. Sixty years later, director Elena Palacios Ramé revived this science fiction classic to ask a simple question with a complex answer: What happens if you move the story to Havana? In the short film Los pueblos silenciosos (2010), Palacios replaces Mars with an abandoned Cuban capital, matching Walter with an extravagant ...

Motherhood Makes A Matriarchy, Lily Mann 2018 Otterbein University

Motherhood Makes A Matriarchy, Lily Mann

Honors Thesis Projects

This analysis will discuss the topic of matriarchies, how they created, and how they are sustained. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Coven are used as examples of matriarchies, wherein Hawthorne’s matriarchy is at its start, whereas Murphy’s matriarchy is coming to a potential end. This will be examined through a comparative analysis between the characters in Hawthorne’s early American work with the characters in Murphy’s contemporary work. Ultimately, Hawthorne’s matriarchy is much more insidious and potentially damaging to a patriarchal norm than Murphy’s reclusive patriarchy. Hawthorne ...


For What Can The Kantian Feminist Hope? Constructive Complicity In Appropriations Of The Canon, Dilek Huseyinzadegan 2018 Emory University

For What Can The Kantian Feminist Hope? Constructive Complicity In Appropriations Of The Canon, Dilek Huseyinzadegan

Feminist Philosophy Quarterly

As feminist scholars, we hope that our own work is exempt from structural problems such as racism, sexism, and Eurocentricism, that is, the kind of problems that are exemplified and enacted by Kant’s works. In other words, we hope that we do not re-enact, implicitly or explicitly, Kant’s problematic claims, which range from the unnaturalness of a female philosopher, “who might as well have a beard,” the stupid things that a black carpenter said “because he was black from head to foot,” the poor women “living in the greatest slavery in the Orient,” to the “sheep-like existence of ...

Writing The Collaborative Process: Measure (Still) For Measure, Shakespeare, And Rape Culture, Nora J. Williams 2018 Independent Scholar

Writing The Collaborative Process: Measure (Still) For Measure, Shakespeare, And Rape Culture, Nora J. Williams

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

To what extent can a process of collaborative creation unseat Shakespeare as a source of cultural authority?

In February 2016, a group of professional performers gathered in an abandoned shop front in Exeter’s city centre to formally begin a devising process with Shakespeare and Middleton’s Measure for Measure that had been incubating in my mind for almost a year. Nearly a year later, in January 2017, an unrelated group of secondary school students began a similar process, with the same text.

What began as a persistent sense that these long-dead writers had omitted an important perspective in their ...


Personae Non Gratae, Laura Bisaillon 2018 University of Toronto Scarborough

Personae Non Gratae, Laura Bisaillon

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

The Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis has traditionally published creative pieces. We believe that this expression is a reflective way to contribute to critical issues in social justice. It was important to the author that this poem has a bilingual appearance. The poem was originally written in English and translated to Amharic.


Nursery Versus Straightjacket: The Feminist Paradox Of “The Yellow Wallpaper”, Ashley N. Brooks 2018 University of North Georgia

Nursery Versus Straightjacket: The Feminist Paradox Of “The Yellow Wallpaper”, Ashley N. Brooks

Papers & Publications: Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Research

In this literary analysis, I examine Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper”, and explore how the literary devices used by Gilman within the story reflect the narrator’s perpetual entrapment in a feminist paradox: to either remain destabilized by mental disturbance, or be besieged by the inescapable doldrums of domestic life. Gilman wrote the story after enduring a doctor-prescribed rest cure, a common treatment for supposedly hysterical women in the nineteenth century. Gilman’s perturbation toward her rest cure treatment is evident through the voice and actions of the similarly afflicted narrator, but the story’s message ...


Female Autistic Perspectives: Limits In Diagnosis And Understanding, Alexandra Helmers 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Female Autistic Perspectives: Limits In Diagnosis And Understanding, Alexandra Helmers

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder has increased dramatically within the last two decades, with males being diagnosed, on average, four to five times more than females. Although researchers in the medical community have searched for a biological explanation for this discrepancy, no definitive cause has been found. I argue that our understanding of autism is primarily a social and cultural construction, in addition to a diagnosable medical disorder. The gender disparity in diagnosis reflects cultural narratives surrounding social interaction and the widespread belief in two distinct gender roles. Furthermore, narratives surrounding the topic of autism tend to unintentionally highlight ...


Race, Sexuality, And Masculinity On The Down Low, Stephen Kochenash 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Race, Sexuality, And Masculinity On The Down Low, Stephen Kochenash

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

In a so-called post-racial America, a new gay identity has flourished and come into the limelight. However, in recent years, researchers have concluded that not all men who have sex with other men (MSM) self-identify as gay, most noticeably a large population of Black men. It is possible that a tainted history of Black enslavement in this country that is inextricably linked with ideas of space, surveillance, subversion, and survival inform a Black male’s self-identification as being “on the down low” (DL). This begs the question: What does mainstream society view as gay-ness and how is the DL ...


Queer Repurposed Artifacts: The State Of New York City’S Contemporary West Village Bars, Stephanie DeBiase 2018 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Queer Repurposed Artifacts: The State Of New York City’S Contemporary West Village Bars, Stephanie Debiase

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

In recent years, there has been a shift in queer bar culture in New York City’s West Village, and this thesis aims to explore what these changes are and why they are happening now. How do West Village bars survive when queer populations are forced out? While there are various ways to consider how and what survives in the Village, three variables will be addressed: queer history, or the history queer-identified groups using activism, safety measures, or collaborating with outside sources to secure their rights and overall wellbeing; (post)gentrification, beginning with the 90s when mainstream LGBT groups teamed ...


My Sets And Sexuality, Andres Sanchez 2018 Illinois State University

My Sets And Sexuality, Andres Sanchez

Journal of Humanistic Mathematics

It was only with the application of set theory to my own personal life that I discovered my true identity and sexuality. In this exploratory, personal essay, I detail my own discovery of my sexuality through mathematics and how this math has become a lens through which I view the world. And, with new knowledge of literary criticism in hand, I can now retroactively describe the thoughts I had in this discovery process.


Intersex And The Pardoner’S Body, Kim Zarins 2018 California State University, Sacramento

Intersex And The Pardoner’S Body, Kim Zarins

Accessus

Most scholars today have retreated from reading into the Pardoner's body in favor of more figurative readings that emphasize his lack of masculinity, and such lack is then linked to his dejection and despair. Other, more affirming readings center the Pardoner's performance, which allows him to model any sort of body desired through figuration. While such positions dominate and older theories like Beryl Rowland's proposal of an intersex Pardoner are dismissed, in fact, an intersex reading might be a more life-affirming interpretation, not only in terms of reframing the Pardoner's body as manifesting variation as opposed ...

Voice Of The Voiceless: The Project Of Black Identity In Carrie Mae Weems’S From Here I Saw What Happened And I Cried, Emma K. Ferguson 2017 University of Puget Sound

Voice Of The Voiceless: The Project Of Black Identity In Carrie Mae Weems’S From Here I Saw What Happened And I Cried, Emma K. Ferguson

Race and Pedagogy Journal: Teaching and Learning for Justice

Of the pieces shown in the 2016 exhibit “30 Americans” at the Tacoma Art Museum, Carrie Mae Weems's "From here I saw what happened and I cried" (1995-1996) was one of the most impactful. Weems's piece is composed of 33 toned images - with two blue-toned images bookending the other red-toned images - framed in circular mattes with sandblasted text over the glass frame. For this work, Weems re-presents daguerreotypes commissioned by Louis Agassiz in 1850; Each portrait, toned in blood-red, has a sandblasted text overlay that, when put together, presents an American narrative of black identity (the full text ...
