Krystin Gollihue Presented at the Cultural Rhetorics Conference

Krystin Gollihue, a second-year CRDM student, presented at the Cultural Rhetorics annual conference at Michigan State University on October 3 as a part of a panel titled, “Locating the Knowledge Making Practices of Girls and Women”. Her presentation, “She Blogs Like Bedroom Culture: A Cultural History of Teenage Girlhood and Web 2.0” gathered qualitative life history interviews from five femme- and female-identified participants who had kept a LiveJournal blog in the early 2000s. The project aims to counter corporate, whitewashed, masculine, and self-generating histories of the Internet by offering the lived, embodied practices of women bloggers in the early adolescence of Web 2.0.
