What I write about

Feminist Movie Reviews

I'm an ardent fan of movies and I enjoy the challenge of framing films in a feminist media studies context. No movie is too silly or unimportant for an intersectional analysis.

Pop Culture Response Pieces

Remember when Miley twerked on the VMA stage? I write about current cultural conversations around race and gender, especially with respect to the representation of black women in the media.

Music Video Commentary

Contextualizing a music video is essential to music criticism. I write about the relationships between an artist, their music and their visual output and what that means for a culture that consumes it.

Television Reviews

I love television and often write response pieces exploring the themes of programs I am watching for pleasure in order to  contextualize them within the current sociopolitical climate.

Cultural Criticism

These birds eye view pieces take a broader look at cultural trends. They are often borne out of stories in the current news cycle and provide a political take on pop culture.
