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.
