CSWG Graduate Seminar - 'Media & Literature'

- Export as iCalendar
Location: Zoom

The Media & Literature series comprises investigations on the negative representation of the female body in a male-dominated industry, including tendencies around the hyper-sexualisation of the girl child, the reinforcement of rape culture, and the impact of these on body and gender in the social imaginary. Additionally, as a counterpoint, the series also offer a look into female authorship and creativity and the struggle of women to explore and establish a literary identity within the world of literature during the Modernist and early Contemporary periods of American Literature.

  • Hannah Sherwood: "'Girls Just Want to Have Fun': Development of the Music Video and the Female Body"
  • Irene Rodriguez Pintado: "Female creation as female self-assertion: The Diary of Anaïs Nin and Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar on female creativity and authorship"
  • Nelly Fais-sad: "Lolita – The Myth of the Child-Woman in Visual Media Concepts"
  • Melissa Arkley-Simpson: "Let Us Be Angry! An Intersectional Analysis of Feminist Anger Expressed Through the Affective Labour of Female Extreme Metal Vocalists"
