Student presents on pop culture and patriarchy

COPLAC RandlettKalie Randlett, a senior who is double majoring in communication and social science, wrote a research paper on Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke’s 2013 MTV Music Video Award performance for a class last year. She was then competitively selected to give a poster presentation on it this weekend.

Kalie’s rhetorical analysis argues that patriarchy is upheld today in pop culture even as women try to assert their empowerment.

Kalie is one of only 17 Keene State College students who were accepted to present at the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC) Northeast Regional Undergraduate Research, Scholarly and Creative Activity Conference that runs November 7-8 at Keene State College.
