"Latina Beauty vs. American Beauty: Exploring Latinas' Self-Esteem and Body Image in Relation to Contrasting Models of Beauty" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Millennium Hotel, Cincinnati, OH, Jun 18, 2008 <Not Available>. 2019-10-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p234745_index.html>

Abstract: This paper seeks to understand the relationships Latinas, living in the United States, have with dominant American culture in contrast to Latino culture, how they internalize the standards of beauty in each, and the way in which these factors influence their level of self-esteem. Through in-depth interviews, I find that access to an alternative model of beauty allows the Latinas interviewed in my study to develop a high level of self-esteem which leads to the conclusion that access to alternative models of beauty that are consistently reinforced will lead to a higher level of self-esteem.

"Black is Beautiful or White is Right?: Local and Global Discourses of Whiteness, Blackness and Beauty in Peru" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, TBA, New York, New York City, Aug 11, 2007 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-10-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p182627_index.html>

Abstract: The ethnographic and interview data presented in this paper allow us to examine how local notions of blackness, whiteness, and beauty in Peru are influenced by, but not determined by, national and global discourses of blackness, whiteness, and beauty. Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork and interviews, I argue that the residents of a primarily black village in Northern Peru have been affected by images of white success and beauty, but have not fully embraced them. Villagers have molded these standards to fit the particularities of their situation, and thus have developed a disdain for certain types of whiteness, but also an appreciation of brown skin and curly hair and a preference for whitening through intermarriage. The findings presented in this paper resonate with other work on globalization that reminds us that we are living in an increasingly interconnected global system, and that while local cultures are resilient, global processes are important in shaping local meanings. Competing representations of blackness and whiteness arrive in this town and are digested by people in different ways. This chapter reveals the complex nature of this intersection of the local and the global, and of the power of people to utilize discursive strategies in ways that make sense to them.

Abstract: The lives of women are changed by conflict. Women often are forced to flee as refugees, subjected to rape, and recruited into militant groups as violent actors. However, post-conflict, the varied roles women assume during wartime frequently are overlooked, leading women’s voices to be excluded from the rebuilding process. This paper examines “post conflict” discourse in the Chechen Republic. It argues that state discourse disseminated characterizing a beauty contest as a "key factor" in “normalizing” the region has served to obscure women’s roles, highlighting women’s physical characteristics while ignoring vital debates regarding human rights in the republic.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper aims to the reconstruction of a kind of display that is not always described in a clear way in Roman collections, the Room of Venuses, and their contents, mythological paintings sometimes quoted by contemporary accounts as “nudes” and explicit erotic images. The idea of the Room of the Venuses, like other thematic installations such as the Room of the Landscapes (Stanza dei Paesi), was born in the context of suburban villas in the early decades of the century. These locales were traditionally dedicated to leisure and to erudite conversation, to diversion and not official receptions; compared to urban palaces, they were more suited to profane themes and to all manner of experiments in decor. The earliest appearance of clustered Venuses can perhaps be traced to the Farnese palace, which boasted small and large rooms with themed displays.

Abstract: Beauty is as beauty does is an autoethnography of the author’s love/hate and insider/outsider relationship with the beauty industry. The story, and it’s associated wider cultural implications, focuses on the intersection of identity, wellness, consumption and entrepreneurialism of black beauty. The article theoretically draws upon black feminist thought and connects powerful statistics of beauty consumption with health and wellness. Reinforcing beauty as an important topic in cultural studies and the problem as a human rights issue, social support, tribal marketing and entrepreneurship are shown to be personal and cultural solutions to black beauty issues that can create economic opportunities for members of beauty communities, individually and collectively.
