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!
