WS 601: Women, Body and Authority:  WS 601: Women, Body and Authority 10 Senior Seminar Research Papers Lindy Simonsen “Lights, Camera, Orgasm: The Pornographic Film and Its Evolving Impact on the Female Body”:  Lindy Simonsen “Lights, Camera, Orgasm: The Pornographic Film and Its Evolving Impact on the Female Body” Simonsen: “I saw an interview on VH1 of Jenna Jameson and was shocked that she was treated like a normal celebrity. I wondered how it came about that pornography is so accepted.” Lights, Camera, Orgasm:  Lights, Camera, Orgasm Thesis: The pornographic film industry has undergone massive changes both on and off- screen in order to gain a broader audience; these revisions have been both liberating and oppressing for the female body. Theory: The history of porn evolving to gain access to more viewers and its effects are not really covered only hinted at in passing. This seems to be a new look at the old pornography good/bad debate. Anne Iverson “Mind Over Matter: Race, Body Image, and Eating Disorders”:  Anne Iverson “Mind Over Matter: Race, Body Image, and Eating Disorders” Iverson: “Beauty seems to have been taken out of the hands of the individual, and women are made to feel as if they must jump through countless hoops in order to feel healthy and attractive. This pressure often results in heavy dieting or disordered eating. However, it seems that most women who are excessively thin in the media and in regular life are white women. Why? This curiosity and the challenge of finding answers led me to write this paper on race, body image, and eating disorders.” Mind over Matter:  Mind over Matter Thesis: White women are more likely to suffer from anorexia and bulimia than Black women for a variety of reasons, including personal, societal, and cultural expectations. Slide6:  Theory: Most of the research and theory that exists takes for granted that "women with eating disorders" is inclusive of all women in the United States, when in fact almost 90% of sufferers are young white women. Furthermore, white feminist perspectives on anorexia and bulimia focus on causes that are based on women in relation to men and the role of the feminine, but rarely take into account the experience of race. In order to determine why there is such a high prevalence rate for white women as opposed to women of color, the questions that are asked must go beyond general demographic statistics. Vanessa Hays“Taking Our Bodies Back: Examining the Role of Female-to-Male Chest Reconstruction Surgery” :  Vanessa Hays“Taking Our Bodies Back: Examining the Role of Female-to-Male Chest Reconstruction Surgery” Hays: “I am involved in a trans community as well as a body modification community and I noticed that the two intersected.” Taking our Bodies Back:  Taking our Bodies Back Thesis: Chest reconstruction surgery helps transmen to reclaim their bodies in much the same way that tattooing and piercing help straight women and queer people reclaim their bodies from the patriarchal system that oppresses them Slide9:  Theory: I will position my argument for body reclamation through surgery against the arguments that body modification—including chest reconstruction surgery—is self-mutilation, and that transmen reify the gender binary by rendering themselves invisible through surgical alteration to their bodies. Meagan Foster: Medical vs. Alternative Methods of Childbirth in the United States: Exploring the Choices of Assisted Birth:  Meagan Foster: Medical vs. Alternative Methods of Childbirth in the United States: Exploring the Choices of Assisted Birth Foster: “I originally became interested in this topic in Kathy Libal’s class; we conducted a birth interview and compared it to an article by Robbie Davis-Floyd. This assignment really interests me, and I wanted to pursue it further for this research paper.” Exploring the Choices of Assisted Birth:  Exploring the Choices of Assisted Birth Thesis: The act of giving birth has evolved into a highly routine and medicalized procedure in the medical/technological model of childbirth which is so dominant in American society; the alternatives to this model are in most cases more supportive of and empowering to the mother, and these choices need to be available, both logistically and educationally, to all women. Slide12:  The theory which is inherent in my paper is the feminist critique of modern birth--how we got where we are today and why it is and should be changing. Attention will also be paid to the pros and cons that feminist theorists present on issues of choice, especially in terms of the dramatic rise in planned sections in recent years. Megan Johnson: “She’s a IX”: The Gendered Presentation of Female Athletic Bodies in Sports Illustrated:  Megan Johnson: “She’s a IX”: The Gendered Presentation of Female Athletic Bodies in Sports Illustrated Johnson: “I participated in three sports in high school: track and field, cross country, and basketball. I knew then, without understanding the details, that Title IX was the main reason that women like myself had the opportunity to participate in sports. With this understanding of Title IX as the main factor in increasing women’s participation in sports, I wanted to examine how effective the law had been at changing pervasive social attitudes that posited men as natural athletes and women as naturally unsuited to or harmed by athletics.” Slide14:  …. Since Sports Illustrated is the most widely read sports magazine, and because I have long been a reader of it myself, I decided to examine SI for its embedded commentary on female athletes. Thesis: One would expect that with the monumental increase in the number of female competitors and the corresponding increase in the spectator popularity of women’s sports that have occurred since Title IX, SI’s coverage of female athletes would also have increased substantially since 1972, the year the law was passed. This is not the case. Furthermore, when female athletes and women’s sports are covered in the magazine, SI’s presentation of those athletes (and women in general) is highly gendered. Slide15:  Theory: I see my work as demonstrating that Title IX has achieved a great deal for women in the realm of athletics, but that there is still a long way to go before women are truly accepted and equally treated as athletes, especially when it comes to un-legislatable, underlying cultural attitudes about athleticism and gender. Shannon Berquist, “Barbie: A Doll with Feminist Motives”:  Shannon Berquist, “Barbie: A Doll with Feminist Motives” Thesis: Barbie does in fact portray a mainstream feminism that the average girl playing with the doll can understand and admire. Laura Wade: “The Second Sex Read in a Feminist and Existential Light”:  Laura Wade: “The Second Sex Read in a Feminist and Existential Light” Thesis: By re-reading Simon de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex both as a feminist reading and as a philosophical reading, we can see that de Beauvoir does value the female body and femininity as a part of humanity and advocates freeing women from subordination so that they can reach their full human potential. Peggy Lervold: “Young and Restless: The Struggle of Adolescence Girls to Assimilate their New Bodies with Their Selves:  Peggy Lervold: “Young and Restless: The Struggle of Adolescence Girls to Assimilate their New Bodies with Their Selves Thesis: The three main changes that arise during puberty and combined to cause larger problems are a newly complicated and ever-changing relationship with peers, the changes of the body, and the changes of the mind. Tess Bricker: In my Own (Inked) Skin. How Women Reclaim their Bodies Through the Art of Tattooing:  Tess Bricker: In my Own (Inked) Skin. How Women Reclaim their Bodies Through the Art of Tattooing Thesis: Tattooing has become in itself an “aesthetic revolution” by transforming women’s bodies from object to subject through a non-verbal mode of expression” Women’s Studies Senior Research Paper Prize—1st Generation:  Women’s Studies Senior Research Paper Prize—1st Generation Honorary Mention Senior Research Paper Prize
