1. Franklin, Cortney. "A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing? The Effect of Sorority Affiliation on Sexual Assault Victimization" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY, Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia, Nov 14, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Existing research on campus sexual assault typically focuses on offender attributes, and more specifically, on the influence of particular group affiliations and rape-supportive social relationships (such as fraternity and athletic team membership) on sexual assault perpetration. In comparison, less attention has been paid to the role of victim characteristics and even fewer scholarly efforts have focused on the effect of sorority-affiliation on sexual assault victimization. The current research utilizes survey data from a sample of sorority and non-sorority affiliated women at a large western university to determine the relationship between sorority membership and female sexual victimization. Research findings and policy implications are discussed.

3. Pauley, Jennifer. "Corsets and Crinolines; Spanx and Stilettos: Clothing and Female Identity, Past and Present" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, Cincinnati, OH, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <>
Publication Type: Individual Paper
Abstract: Students are often surprised to discover that novels written during the Victorian period, known for its prudery and refinement, contain episodes of gender-bending, cross-dressing, and a resistance to patriarchal norms. Marian Halcombe, the heroine of Wilkie Collins’s The Woman in White, for example, resists patriarchal norms by refusing to wear a corset, shedding her crinoline, and enacting the role of female detective. After highlighting the ways in which ideas about gender and female identity are represented in the Victorian novel, this presenter will discuss strategies used to engage students in discussions about female identity and feminism in 2013.

4. Hampel, Sharon. "Clothing the Outcast Woman: Milton, Female Rebellion, and Early Talmudic Sources" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Sheraton Hotel and Marina, San Diego, CA, Apr 04, 2013 <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: In the Doctrine and Discipline of Divorce, Milton defines a rebellious wife as one who demonstrates "continual headstrong behaviour" (YP 335). This definition is somewhat softened in Tetrachordon when Milton excuses rebelliousness because a wife is "not bound to be a vassal" (YP 591). Here Milton contends that the New Testament counsels divorce for waywardness, not adultery. Throughout the Divorce Tracts and in his poetry, Milton becomes increasingly charitable toward such wandering. Although Milton references the Maimonidean precept that a husband "must be compelled to divorce" a woman who cannot abide him (Book of Women 2.148.89), Milton moves beyond Maimonides and his own contemporary, John Selden, when, in Tetrachordon, he advocates charitable provisions for a rebellious or outcast woman. Milton thus echoes the Medieval Gaonic judgments of the Palestinian Talmud and the Near Eastern marriage contracts based upon those judgments.

"The Emperor Has No Clothes: Comparing South Florida Spanish-Language and Cuban Media Coverage of Sea Level Rise" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association 65th Annual Conference, Caribe Hilton, San Juan, Puerto Rico, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <>
Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: Rising sea levels threaten to transform coastlines across the globe in unprecedented manners, as established boundaries, flows and institutions are disrupted. The South Florida-Caribbean region is one among the most vulnerable in the world to impacts of sea level rise. This study seeks to better understand the ways South Florida Spanish-language media and Cuban media are engaging their audiences in dialogues relating to this issue. How are media portraying the risks associated with sea level rise, and are they offering solutions for change, or simply covering events? We give particular focus to how media from the two nations cover regional efforts to address impacts of sea level rise, and the implications for their audiences. We examine both legacy and alternative media in South Florida and Cuba, focusing on 2013-2014, when the issue gained much prominence in South Florida media, given dramatic flooding events and increased expenditures to revamp and improve infrastructure.
