    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : I would actually argue that books like Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre are much less anti-feminist than Twilight.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : But you can't hold it against Jane Austen that she wasn't psychic and didn't predict the feminist movement. Or even, really, the women's suffrage movement.
    Posted by msmerymac[/QUOTE]

    i wasnt.  I was trying to point out (and poorly it seems) that if you dont like a book because of the anti-feminist way it portrays women, then would you not dislike all books that portray women in a similar way regardless of when it was written and what was going on in the world at the time?  Austen was probably the wrong reference point.

    However, I was outnumbered and lost the argument miserably.  I also got called some interested names because I thought it would be fantastic to be a SAHM.

    It was an interesting class to say the least.

    It's just semantics to me.  I don't care what we call it as long as it's the same for everyone.  As an atheist, I'm fine letting religion "win" the word <em>marriage</em> if it means so much to them, provided that the government makes the associated civil rights available to everyone.

    You make a valid point, though.

    I'll admit I used to dislike the idea of being a SAHM and even made fun of soccer moms and their minivans. Then when I had my son, there was nothing in the world I wanted more than to be one. It's funny how perspective changes things.

    I don't think I could be a SAHM, but it's just because I'm really bad at housekeeping. :) I wouldn't knock anyone who does it though. Maybe that's feminism 2.0.

    And Celles, on the "marriage" word, I guess I'm just not willing to let them win. I'm pretty sensitive to the rhetoric that suggests that an atheist is somehow un-American or second class, and I would definitely feel that much more strongly if suddenly I wasn't allowed to call my marriage a marriage anymore.

    Meh, I'm not great at housekeeping either. It's more that I want to be super involved with Emerson. I want to be the mom that makes home made cupcakes for his birthday, goes on field trips, and helps with school functions and all that jazz. Although, when he gets to the age where he's in school 7 hours a day, I would have to find something else to occupy my time while he's gone. I'd get too bored.

    Believe me, I know where you're coming from.  When President Obama included "non-believers" in his inaugural speech, I literally cried.  It was the first time I felt recognized and valued by my own government.  

    I guess I'm just a pessimist.  I don't think religion will let go of this crusade anytime soon, and I'd rather that people lived with equal rights than equal language.  Obviously, both would be ideal.  :)

    My dissertation is on the common soldier monuments that started appearing everywhere in the United States after the Civil War, and how they were important in shaping civic identity and contributing to or perhaps complicating the reunion between North and South. On a broader scale, my research area is American art, and I specialize in sculpture.

    I tend to really like the museums that have good American collections, like the Met, PAFA in Philly, the National Gallery in DC, MFA in Boston... but I can be happy in pretty much any museum. The art museum out here in Milwaukee is pretty fabulous. There are a lot of smaller museums that I haven't visited yet, but I'd really like to.

    Celles I get your point about the civil union being the legal aspect and civil marriage being the religious, but historically the word has been marriage, and lots of gay couples are religious and want that title like FI and I do. We joke about it, saying we're getting "unionized" (sounds like we're joinging the teamsters!), but it's really not funny, it's painful.

    I just hope that the time will come when same sex marriage is legal in the whole country and that I'm around to see it.

    Out of curiosity, about how long does your disseration have to be? One of my English professors said hers was around 300 pages. I want to get my PhD someday using my MA thesis (which was 37 or 47, can't remember which), but I really don't want to write 300 pages. I'd rather just write a book.

    Your topic sounds really interesting, though. Very cool.

    I think it will happen. I think we might have to wait a decade or two for some people to die and thus change the political dynamic, but it will happen in our lifetimes. If you talk to young people on either side of the political spectrum, you will find massive support for gay marriage. Most of the opposition is generational.

    Well, your dissertation is ideally supposed to be your first book project if you want to become a professor. The page length is not specified, but I'm looking at a 4-chapter dissertation, so 200-300 pages is not out of the question. And I'm going to be working on it for at least the next three years, so I could imagine writing that much.

    Sesh, I'm not Sarah, but I know it depends on your program and topic a little. But in my field (history) a thesis is usually about 60-100 pages, a dissertation is usually 150-300 pages. I once saw one that was 400 pages. I can't imagine!

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : My dissertation is on the common soldier monuments that started appearing everywhere in the United States after the Civil War, and how they were important in shaping civic identity and contributing to or perhaps complicating the reunion between North and South. On a broader scale, my research area is American art, and I specialize in sculpture. I tend to really like the museums that have good American collections, like the Met, PAFA in Philly, the National Gallery in DC, MFA in Boston... but I can be happy in pretty much any museum. The art museum out here in Milwaukee is pretty fabulous. There are a lot of smaller museums that I haven't visited yet, but I'd really like to.

    I only ask about the NE because those are the only ones I'd likely get a chance to visit. I love the Met and the National Gallery. I really like, though rarely understand, modern art so I enjoy MoMA and the Guggenheim as well. I haven't been to MFA in like 10 years, but what I remember was good. I've never been to PAFA, but I owe my mom a trip there as a "date" and I hope to make it this winter at some point. I <3 museums. I'm a big fan a painting, esp. 19th century european painters.

    <strong>ETA: Also your diss sounds really interesting I really like the part about how it shaped civic identity, very very interesting.</strong>
