Please join the Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Program & the Center for Gender and Sexuality for our next session of Behind the Publication, a behind-the-scenes workshop series on faculty research in gender and sexuality.

The series continues with Dr. Stine Eckert, Associate Professor in the Department of Communication. Dr. Eckert's research and teaching foci are journalism studies, gender media studies and communication theories and publics. She has been conducting research on the transformation of journalism and media, the potentials and limitations of new media for minorities, and the constructions of gender in media. She is Co-PI on the NSF ADVANCE grant WSU-GEARS (Gender Equity Advances Retention in STEM). She also serves as Chair of the Helen Award Committee for Emerging Feminist Scholarship of the Feminist Scholarship Division (FSD) of the International Communication Association (ICA) and is editor of the peer-reviewed bilingual journal Journalism Research / Journalistik. This presentation, entitled "(More) Visibility for Lesbians: Franco Stevens and Curve Magazine," draws from a chapter in a forthcoming book.  

About the series: The central goal of this series is to offer graduate and undergraduate students a series of informal workshops where faculty encourage and demystify research by sharing their own experiences. We invite WSU faculty members to share a little about the genesis of their current or recent research. We ask them to discuss the joys and frustrations of the project; to elaborate on the decisions around the scope of the work; to assess methodological questions; to discuss writing practices; to highlight the importance of colleagues, librarians, friends, and other interlocutors more generally for their work; and to offer tips and strategies to help students through their own projects.
