American Aviatrixes: Women with Wings
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Throughout the early twentieth century, women looked to break new ground in ways never before possible, and the sky literally became the limit. As the nation moved into the aviation age, many women saw flying as a way to break out of traditional societal roles. It gave women not just an opportunity for adventure and excitement, but a way to earn a living outside of the home that demanded respect. Aviatrix Ruth Bancroft Law described it, after defeating the cross-country distance record: "There is an indescribable feeling which one experiences in flying; it comes with no other form of sport or navigation. It takes courage and daring; one must be self-possessed, for there are moments when one's wits are tested to the full. Yet there is an exhilaration that compensates for all one's efforts." In this exhibition we explore the early history of aviation and the courageous women who took to the skies—aviatrixes who found freedom, broke new ground, and inspired generations of women along the way. This exhibition was created as part of the DPLA’s Digital Curation Program by the following students as part of Professor Debbie Rabina’s course "Information Services and Sources" in the School of Information and Library Science at Pratt Institute: Megan DeArmond, Diana Moronta, Laurin Paradise.

American Women's Dime Novel Project
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Dime novels written by women were once enormously popular with their readers, but the genre has been neglected for most of its history by scholars, collectors, and libraries. The genre suffers from the double burden of being both popular and written for working-class women. This project hopes to overcome the history of oversight to both the form and its readers by providing information about the novels themselves, the authors, the readers, and nineteenth century public reaction.
This site is a source of information about women’s dime novels and includes primary sources on dime novels, biographies for lesser-known authors, lists of relevant archival collections and cover art.

Arab Culture Through Literature and Film: Gender Roles
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This curriculum understands gender and gender roles as social constructs that are built, defined, and fulfilled on an individual and societal level. These roles are both an outcome of and rationale for appearance, behavior, and interactions of individuals and groups. Such concepts of gendered behavior are impacted by various factors including one's age, geographic location, social class, religion, marital status, and ethnicity. In this unit, students explore the dynamics of gender in the Arab world and consider their varied manifestations, perhaps challenging traditional notions of gender in the region. Students will explore the nuances of gendered interactions in public and private space and the pressures that gender expectations may place on individuals in the region. By engaging with texts and stories from the region, students will consider how those traditional expectations are negotiated and contested in a variety of ways.

Feminism 101 introductory lectures
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

I have produced a series of introductory undergraduate lectures on the subject of feminism and gender: the first introduces the concept of gender, the second tackles discussions around universalism and intersectionality, the third explores issues around reproduction, and the fourth applies an intersectional analysis to the topic of gender, power and violence. I have also produced a fifth which covers how to write an undergraduate essay.

The lectures take the form of Prezi presentations. They are free for academic colleagues and others to download, adapt and use as they see fit. They can be simply read out in class, expanding on points where appropriate, used as the basis for a more in-depth lectures by colleagues with expertise in the field, or clicked through and read by students in preparation for discussion sessions. The webpage includes links to transcripts of each lecture, for text readers.
