The teenager seems to have replaced the Communist as the appropriate target for public controversy and foreboding. ~Edgar Friedenberg, The Vanishing Adolescent

Hey All-
My name is Kayla and I will be doing my Women Studies internship as the teaching assistant to Professor Bogad. I am a senior in the Women Studies department and will be looking for a real job when i graduate at the end of this semester. :) I loved this class when iI took it last year and am so excited to be involved in the teaching aspect of it this semester. I currently work at D&G Auto Services part time and live in Cumberland with my best friend and pet ferret. The TV shows I am currently obsessing about are Modern Family, Gossip Girl, Greek, and Skins all of which perpetuate ideas about teenagers to teenagers. Mindless TV isn't so mindless, media has an extraordinary amount of power over what you think and thats why I find it so intriguing. It is my hope that through media education I will one day be able to change the way our society views gender, race, ability, socio-economic status, and religion.
