RALLYING FOR A CAUSE

A great communicator

Communication Studies
Prof. Susan Douglas not only
studies the mass media; she's
a part of it.
After her 1994 hook,
"Where the Girls Are: Grow-
ing Up Female with the Mass
Media," became a hit, Doug-
las found herself as a guest on
"The Oprah Winfrey Show."
"You're met at the airport
in Chicago by this giant limo,
and swept off to a hotel where
you have a big fancy room,"
she said of her appearance on
the show.
After the show, Douglas
even got to go shopping with
famous television personal-
ity Barbara Billingsley, who
played June Cleaver on the
sitcom, "Leave it to Beaver."
"I went shopping with
June Cleaver, which was a

total hoot!" she said.
Douglas - an expert in the
portrayal of gender roles in
the media - started teaching
in the University's Depart-
ment of Communication
Studies in 1996, but she didn't
always want to be a profes-
Douglas said when she was
a teenager she never believed
a woman could teach at a level
above high school.
"The women's movement
opened up so many doors for
my generation," she said.
Douglas said she first
became interested in the
mass media during her time
in graduate school at Brown
University, though she said
she "hardly watched televi-
sion at all" during her under-
graduate years.

But with a less social envi-
ronment in graduate school,
Douglas found herself sitting
around the T.V. more often
and was inspired to study
what she saw.
"For me it was like picking
up a rock," she said.
Douglas studies many
aspects of the mass media,
ranging from the history of
broadcasting to her current
topic of interest, celebrity cul-
cure. She said though many
think celebrity culture isn't a
serious topic, there is much to
be gleaned from studying it.
"Celebrity journalism is
filled with morality tails...of
how we're supposed to live
our lives, gender roles, suc-
cess, happiness, etc.," she
said.
