School of Social and Policy Studies Seminar - Dr Sue Jackson  [PDF]  (825.37K)

In this informal presentation Dr Sue Jackson will discuss her research project with co-researcher Tiina Vares in which 71 girls were given video cameras to record media diaries about the popular culture they engaged with in everyday life. The researchers' interest was in exploring the meanings girls were making of the hypersexy, hyperfeminine representations of girls and women in the media and how these meanings were negotiated in relation to understandings of self and others. The project was driven by the notable absence of empirically derived knowledge from research with girls themselves in contemporary sexualisation claims and the alternative tenuous assumptions upon which these claims were grounded.
