Pin-Up Grrrls at The Chronicle of Higher Education
Feminism, Sexuality, Popular Culture The Grey Lady of the Academy isn’t gray but does have ladies.
Or at least girls. I mean, grrrls. New, creative writing. So hip! So groovey! Valley Girl spelling for the dirty old male professors. Tired of Playboy and Hustler. Moving up to cultural raunch.
But there is more to the pictures than mere prurient interest. There’s a book. By an academic. A Bitch, Ph.D. wannabe, Maria Elena Buszek. Her scholarly book has 464 pages. (Whatever.) And 103 photographs. (Now you’re talking.) Including 9 pictures, NINE! IN COLOR!! (Hot D*M!)
The book is described as a,
brilliantly vibrant debut book, [where] Maria Elena Buszek gives a lucid, rich, and thorough account of … history in which women employ the power of erotic imagery to celebrate themselves.
So. Patriots celebrate the 4th of July. Catholics celebrate Mass. Feminists celebrate… themselves.
Truth from The Chronicle of Higher Education. Your tuition dollars at work.
