International Women's Day | A Discussion with A/P Jennifer Frost, Katie Cammell & Louise Ryan

Tahuhu Korero Podcast

Episode Four features discussions on what it means to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD). This day was set with certain, quite progressive, ideals for its time, aiming for equality and peace for all women. Over time this progressed to equality and peace for all, irrespective of gender, race, and social standing. Despite these founding ideals, many controversies arose over the commercialisation of feminism, and the "colonial mindset" that is still prevalent in today's society. www.tahuhukorero.com

Kathleen A. Feeley and Jennifer Frost, “When Private Talk Goes Public: Gossip in American History” (Palgrave McMillan, 2014)

New Books in American Studies

Across a series of twelve essays, When Private Talk Goes Public: Gossip in American History (Palgrave McMillan, 2014)examines the important and understudied role gossip has played in American history.Whether fashioned as “rumor, hearsay, tittle-tattle, scuttlebutt, scandal, [or] dirt,” gossip in its many forms is a central, if often discounted feature of American life. Kathleen A. Feeley and Jennifer A. Frost‘s compilation spans five centuries, exploring gossip from the early colonial period through its modern reinvention via new media.Within, contributors explore gossip as a mode of social and moral control, as a way for woman to wield political power outside of the formal channels closed to them, in espionage, in the making (and breaking) of celebrities through the rise of the gossip press, and in cyberspace.More importantly, the collection serves as a valuable aggregation of scholars and approaches for an important developing field.  Historians, legal scholars, scholars of gender, journalism, film, and new media all contribute, giving the volume analytical depth to match its varied and fascinating subjects. Taken together, these case studies demonstrate the richness of this pervasive and powerful social practice, and offer new interpretations of its significance. Learn more about your ad choices.
