As you’ve seen here, one of my research interests is the representation of women in the media. This past semester I conducted an original research project to examine how popular feminist discourses are used throughout teen or tween media. It was a fascinating study, and one I hope to expand further. But, for now, the original introduction to the paper has been added to my writing page! This is a very relevant and important topic to today’s media landscape, and I hope research like this can help improve the media texts offered to women and young girls. Enjoy!
