"The Power of Passivity and the Embodied Technology of Disability and Dolls" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver, CO, Nov 11, 2010 <Not Available>. 2019-08-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p429196_index.html>

Abstract: This presentation brings films, Lars and the Real Girl (2007 US) and Air Doll (2009 Japan) to explore the boundaries of human agency and bodies as well as the ideology of ability and sexuality. The representations of dolls as disabled and nondisabled raise a question about what it means to be human and what it means to have (and be) bodies within the systems of recognition. I discuss the agency of passivity as radical to which the community around them has to either reject or surrender. I explore the gender dynamics of disability and passivity through their relationship with dolls.

Abstract: The first decade of the twenty-first century has seen a resurgence of pornography, stripping, and prostitution, with a mainstream acceptance of these as “empowerment” and “choice” for young women. My paper critiques third wave “sex-positive” feminism in Britain and the United States, analyzing the terms and concepts of Natasha Walker’s and Ariel Levy’s recent books. The purpose of the paper is to explore not only similarities but different nuances in both countries’ return to sexism in the 2000s, in order to show how the socioeconomic structure of each country affects its cultural production around patriarchy and sex roles.

4. Ivashkevich, Olga. "Girls, Dolls, and Gender Disruptions" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Eighth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2019-08-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p567674_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: Girls’ resistance to gender norms is generally interpreted in two ways: as a populist discourse of “girl power” that portrays girls as free-willed consumers of emancipatory opportunities and products; and as purposeful actions of girl activists who are visible in the public realm and who actively promote feminist agendas. These views seem to fulfill different ideologies and overlook the diverse realms of girls’ mundane gender disruptions. The paper reconceptualizes girls’ resistance to gender regimes as a lived affective agency. It draws upon ethnographic examinations of preteen girls’ deregulated doll play, in which they embrace iconic Barbie dolls and other popular female action figures, while also creating symbolic slippages, parodic deformations, and subversive juxtapositions of the normative female representations.

5. Morrison, Abigail. "Broken doll: An illness narrative of stigma, disability, and doctor/patient relationships" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Tenth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2019-08-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p719610_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This illness narrative addresses issues of credibility surrounding patients who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness and/or disability (ie. Cerebral Palsy), and how having a long-term chronic illness/disability addresses issues of stigma, disability, and the doctor/patient communication. The paper examines issues of stigma including stigma by society, internal stigma, and stigma by medical professionals. It also provides information on disabilities specifically redefining disabilities and analyzing communication between able-bodied persons and people with disabilities. In many long-term relationships between doctors and patients, and where patients may also have received a secondary mental and/or emotional diagnosis, this autoethnography explores hierarchical framework as it relates to the complicated process of the doctor/patient relationship. The goal of this presentation is to provide information to medical personnel so they can consider alternative ways to engage individuals with disabilities.
