1. Triplette, Stacey. "Four Female Quijotes: Chivalry and the Female Reader in Don Quijote, Parts I and II" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2019-05-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p525438_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: This paper examines the fates of four transgressive female characters in Don Quijote who are highly conversant with chivalric motifs. Golden Age conduct books universally prohibit chivalric reading for women on account of its licentious content. However, in Don Quijote, part 1, Dorotea and Luscinda gain moral and material advantages from their performance of chivalric convention. From their reading practices, they learn techniques that enable them to bring about appropriate marriages. In Don Quijote, part 2, the Duchess and Altisidora employ chivalric tropes for a less noble purpose, namely, the humiliation of Don Quijote. Their malign intent and ultimate failure undermine the triumph of chivalric reading in part 1. The fate of chivalry and of women in the Quijote is closely entwined. If the end of the novel can be said to stage the death of chivalry, it can likewise be said to dramatize the death of female empowerment.

Abstract: This research provides an empirical assessment of the relationship between female status and female rates of offending across a large sample of nations. Rates of female offending and the female share of offending are measured using INTERPOL arrest figures from the late 1990’s. This study goes beyond previous research by including several alternative indicators of female status. We include both absolute measure of female status as well as measures of the status of females relative to that of males. Additionally, measures tap female status in multiple spheres of social life, including the economy, education, health and politics. Measures of female status are drawn from the World Bank, United Nations, and other international data sources.

3. Lewis, Sydney. "Revealing Venus: The Spectacle of the Black Female Body (Re)Made Spectacular through the Black Female Neo-Burlesque Performer" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver, CO, <Not Available>. 2019-05-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p429582_index.html>

Abstract: Frequently linked to riot-grrrl post-feminism and sex-positivity, neo-burlesque is considered a re-appropriation of the ‘classic art of striptease,’ allowing women to control and perform their sexuality. Through critical theories of the black female body as abject spectacle, this paper uses three case-studies of black neo-burlesque performers to explore how their performance manipulates and intervenes in dominant discourses around black female sexuality. These performances represent a radical black female sexual subjectivity that does not simply reverse established hierarchies, but instead demand a new disorder by rejecting both the dominant narrative of sexual objectification and the counter-narrative of bourgeoisie respectability.

Abstract: Great strides have been made to explain the causes of female delinquency. However, research has failed to explore how certain structural aspects of detention centers perpetuate crime. In the current study, I propose a new approach in examining female delinquency utilizing certain aspects from several theories: Learning Theory, Labeling Theory, and Feminist Theory. Specifically, the study will inspect how juvenile detention centers not only limit the potential growth of young females, but also reinforce negative behaviors that continue to propagate criminal actions that result from the overarching oppressive nature of incarceration.

Abstract: Brazil’s current power structure with its first female head of state and her PT Amazons tests Brazil’s gender status. This study investigates Brazilian media to see how women have been framed in news and the recent, top-ranked telenovela Duas Caras to better understand the rising role of women and what this might mean for Brazilian national identity. Framing theory informs a comparative narrative analysis of news and novela frames surfacing from a sample of 313 newspaper and newsmagazine reports plus 291 photos concurrent with 31 telenovela episodes from the 2007-2008 timeframe. Two salient latent news frames emerge: Women are on the way up, since Brazilian democracy is more social than racial, and Female open-mindedness leads to (national) progression. Strong intertextuality between the two salient latent (news) media frames indicates that Brazilian female leadership may be the key in achieving racial democracy, or a more egalitarian national identity.
