Write about yourself: At what point did you become a (wo)man? Was there a precise moment when you knew? Did someone let you know? Was it a step-by-step process? Not there yet? Why? When will you know? What must you do? What is a “wo/man”?

My best quality is loyalty to that which is good to me; as soon as a system proves itself to be great to me, I will devote all I can to that system.

Dear Professor Jennifer M. Bean,

I am a high school student interested in learning more about media and film studies, especially dealing with gender theories. I am also really impressed by your department’s work, which I read about at your website. Currently, I am writing an essay analyzing a Stetson cologne advertisement that is particularly degrading to women. Soon, I will be writing a paper analyzing the roles/portrayals of women in popular films like Maid in Manhattan. Would you please enlighten me about what I should look for to improve my perspectives for my papers? What do you tell your students when you want them to use critical lenses?

Thanks sincerely for your time,
Brandon V. Alley
