Food, Feminism, and Hip-Hop: My Presentation for the Robyn Rafferty Mathias Research Conference in Washington, DC

Hi everyone!

Wow, it has been an incredibly busy, but wonderful few weeks (therefore, please accept my sincerest apologies for the major delay in posting time!)  This past weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to present my research about the representation of gender through the usage of food metaphors in hip-hop and pop music from the early 1990s to late 2000s at the Robyn Rafferty Mathias Research Conference in Washington, DC.

Anyone who knows me best knows that I can not live without music—especially rock and pop music. Therefore, I decided to combine my love of rock and pop music with another issue I care deeply about, which is feminism (no, not the man-hating kind…the Sex and the City/Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants kind!).  I just wanted to take this opportunity to share my project with you, because it very much fits with the concept of this blog and I had a blast getting to pick apart some of the most iconic songs of the past two decades. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
