WGSS alum Dr. Amanda Rossie recently had a part of her dissertation published online in the journal Feminist Media Studies.
Feminist Media Studies is a journal that aims to provide a transdisciplinary, transnational forum for researchers pursing feminist approaches in the field of media and communication studies, with focus on historical, cultural, political, social, philosophical, and economic dimensions and analyses.
Dr. Amanda Rossie received her PhD from the department in 2014, and was named as a Mellon/ACLS fellow in 2017. Last year, she also began her work with the National Women’s Law Center in Washington D.C., where she works as a Policy Analyst. Dr. Rossie’s article, titled “’Pinning’ Down Time: Post-Feminist Pregnancies on Pinterest,” analyzes “baby bump” photos on Pinterest, explores the labors in visually producing a post-feminist pregnancy, and shows how Pinterest is a pedagogical space that teaches women how to stylize their pregnancies in ways that reproduce normative maternal femininity.
To view more of her work, visit the National Women’s Law Center website.
Congratulations to Dr. Rossie on her accomplishment!
