Link to her TED talk.
Gender has become my second line of research, specifically masculinity, as I find it quite interesting to examine. Anita Sarkeesian is a media critic who maintains a youtube channel called Feminist Frequency. She started a kickstarter campaign asking the public for funding on a content analysis of female videogame characters examining tropes. A backlash ensued which generates a great deal of data (from my perspective) about men and videogames. Her TED talk was just recently posted. (I can’t seem to embed her video)
A few research notes to myself and other communication scientists: Find someone who can do Spiral of Silence (see Noelle-Neuman, 1974). Moral disengagement & Dehumanization (Rudman & Mescher, 2012). Theoretical testing between sexual harassment theories (see Pina et al., 2009 for review) and computer-mediated theories (SIDE) for sexual harassment behaviours on the internet so I can have some ideas of what questions to ask later.
