Ph.D. Graduate Student

Tiffany is teaching W St 338, Women and Popular Culture, for fall 2014. She has previously taught W St 101/200, Gender and Power: Introduction to Women's Studies, and CES 260, Race and Racism in U.S. Popular Culture.

Her primary research interest is apocalypse culture, specifically the manifestations of apocalypse as "lore" in popular culture, the worshipping of the "primitive," and community building around survival/disaster preparedness. Other interests include cyber studies, vernacular religion, gaming culture and the LGBTQ community, women and "geek" culture, and cinema studies.

Tiffany is presenting papers during the spring 2014 semester at the annual conference of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) in Seattle as well as the annual conference of the Popular Culture Assocation/American Culture Association (PCA/ACA) in Chicago. Her presentations discuss raced and gendered recuperations of wounded white masculinity in The Book of Eli and Doomsday Preppers.
