Chick Lit and Chick Flicks-Legitimate Genres or Marketing Ghettos?
(Politics, Religion, and Money)
"Chick Lit" and "Chick Flicks" are terms that are thrown around a lot in advertising and other media and are often used negatively. Are there any legitimate uses of the terms? Is this just another way for a male-dominated society to disparage works that address the lives and concerns of women?

John M. Scalzi, Linda McAllister, BC Holmes, Alma Alexander, Lee Abuabara

Sunday, 10:00-11:15 a.m. in Conference Room 5
Intro to The Ecology of Joy
