Gender, Girlhood and Representation in Taylor Swifts Music and Fandom

Join us for another virtual discussion with Dr. Catherine Fairfield, Postdoctoral Teaching Associate in the English department. Following up on our February lecture focused on Taylor Swift’s storytelling through her eras, this upcoming lecture will focus on the role of gender in the universality of the Swiftie fandom. We will explore the ways that gender in Taylor Swift’s writing and public persona unite a diverse fandom community. We will unpack the significance of Swift’s singular investment in portrayals of girlhood and, more recently, womanhood in her music.

Gavels in Governance: Legal Action for Environmental Justice

Legal action is increasingly recognized as a pivotal approach to address pressing environmental and climate crises. From youth in Montana to communities in Kenya, stakeholders ranging from elected officials to grassroots activists harness judicial systems’ power to catalyze transformative change.

Join us at the Policy School of Northeastern University on our Arlington, VA campus for a critical conversation exploring the strategic use of courts and legal tools to navigate and overcome political gridlock. This session will delve into the impact of legal frameworks at local and global scales, highlighting successful strategies that reshape law- and policymaking to foster environmental sustainability and justice. Through this dialogue, we aim to uncover how targeted legal actions can not only address local issues but also drive substantial progress in international regulations, contributing to key issues such as climate change mitigation and plastic pollution elimination.
