Abstract: Theorizing the relationship between pornography and heterosexual men's investment in and enactment of hegemonic masculine practice—particularly overt sexism, the objectification of women, and violence against women—is longstanding and fraught territory in feminist research and activism. Drawing on interactional and post-structural theories of gender, I attempt to move beyond binary debates about whether or not pornography impacts heterosexual men's gender ideology or sexual practice to argue that pornography has a much more complex relationship to individual men's accomplishment of gender. Drawing on 15 in-depth life history interviews asking subjects to narrate their experiences of sexual learning, this article attempts to link debates about pornography to theories of gender, particularly theories of multiple masculinities. I argue not that pornography use has a direct causal relationship to gender outcomes, but that pornography use can become implicated in gender outcomes where pornography use and preferences are believed by individual men to signify inadequate or failed masculinity. I argue that where subjects did not feel their pornography use had any bearing on adequate or inadequate gender accomplishment, they experienced a greater security in departing from normative masculine forms over the life course, resulting in more egalitarian and pro-feminist gender ideology and sex practice. Where pornography use contributed to anxieties about inadequate or failed masculinity, subjects became more invested in the performance of normative masculinity and exhibited greater reluctance to depart from normative masculine forms over the life course. Implications for the maintenance of unequal gender relations are discussed.

Abstract: With a nine month ethnographic study as its basis, this paper is looking at the role transnational media flows play in the formation of local, class-specific cosmopolitan identities amongst the lower middle class youth of Cairo. By suggesting that cosmopolitanism should be understood as a form of internal heterogeneity; where through personal strategies and performance the global is made a part of our own local repertoires, this paper is arguing that it is lower middle class Egyptian youth who are more deserving of the cosmopolitan label. Through an intricate integration of Islamic discourse and Islamic media into their daily social practices, members of the lower middle class are engaged in the production of more dynamic cosmopolitanisms based on a happy negotiation between both local and global repertoires. Such unpredictable forms of cosmopolitanism are created through exclusion and belonging within different spaces of the city and media practice.

Abstract: This study analyzes the impact of childhood socioeconomic status on midlife obesity and extends the research by estimating the influence of intergenerational social mobility on midlife obesity. People who experience “social immobility” could be those who are stuck on the bottom of the socioeconomic ladder, or those that occupy the ceiling. Past studies do not separate these two social groups and overlook the fact that people who are stuck in the bottom may have a more serious risk of obesity and related illnesses, compared to those who experience downward social mobility. Other studies also neglect the fact that people who are immobile at the ceiling may have better health outcomes compared to those who experienced upwardly social mobility. By using the Wisconsin Longitudinal Survey, this study provides the evidence that social mobility has a medicating effect on one’s obesity while pointing out that people who stayed in the bottom 10th percentile of SES after 35 years had highest effects on the risk of obesity after controlling their childhood and adulthood SES.

Abstract: A number of texts, published and circulated in different forms -- letters, memoirs, proclamations -- document a struggle between two of the most powerful women of the French Renaissance, Jeanne d'Albret and Catherine de Médicis. One of the most intriguing elements in this confrontation between these extraordinary women is the status of the information that passed between them. What techniques did important people use to disseminate and have access to information that was supposed to be kept secret? Jeanne d'Albret spends most of her time in her Mémoires and letters trying to establish what exactly she had communicated to Catherine de Médicis, in which format, and how it was systematically misunderstood and manipulated. This paper will examine the fragile and unpredictable structure of personal written communication in this historical context, and the role it played in the difficult relationship between the Queen of Navarre and the Queen mother of France.
