  • About

    Caitlin is broadly interested in popular culture studies, with specific interests in celebrity studies and gender and the media. Her current research explores how young women engage with celebrity culture, focusing on how it fits into their overall media landscape and what purposes it serves in their lives. She received her B.A. in English from the University of Oklahoma and her M.A. in English with a concentration in film studies from the University of Central Oklahoma, where she completed a thesis examining the effects of transgender characters in film on the audience’s gaze.
