DISSERTATION TITLE: "Sexual Subjects: Hooking Up in the Age of Post-Feminism"
Dissertation Chair: Sharon Hays
In Sexual Subjects, I combine historical, textual, ethnographic, and interview methodologies to examine the relationship between college hook-up culture and post-feminist culture, demonstrating how both are connected to the perpetuation of gender and racial inequalities and the production of neoliberal subjects. I find that hook-up culture is post-feminist both in its explicit claim to operate "beyond gender" and in its implicit re-inscription of key gender, sexual, and racial stereotypes and hierarchies. In its specific focus on the connections between hooking up and post-feminism, this research speaks to the stalled "revolution" in sexual politics, as well as issues of gender and racial inequality, and suggests a new way of thinking about contemporary sexual interactions.
