Using popular culture as a fertile environment for challenging the stereotype that the most brilliant geeks or nerds must be men, the essays in this book demonstrate how the popular media repeatedly affirms stereotypes of femininity while paradoxically challenging the stigmatization of smart women. Contributors salute a wide range of popular characters and real female role models, from Daria to Hillary Rodham Clinton, weaving in references to television shows like Gilmore Girls and analyses of classic icons like Sabrina.

Handlungsmacht, Widerständigkeit, kulturelle Ordnungen - mit diesem Dreiklang formuliert der Sammelband ein kulturwissenschaftliches Forschungsprogramm, wie es fu?r eine historisch und empirisch-ethnografisch ausgerichtete Kulturanalyse und Alltagsforschung kennzeichnend ist. Die Beiträge befassen sich in exemplarischen Feldern - vom Kochbuch über Ländlichkeit, vom Geldfälschen über die Sommerfrische bis hin zu Protesten und urbanen Wohnraumpolitiken - mit kulturellen Ordnungen auf der einen Seite und mit subversiven, widerständigen oder kreativen Formen der Aneignung auf der anderen Seite. Die Fallstudien des Bandes fokussieren dabei die unterschiedlichsten Formen von Handlungsmacht, denen das Potenzial innewohnt, kulturelle Ordnungsmuster in Frage zu stellen, aufzubrechen oder zu transformieren.

Whether it’s Sherlock Holmes solving crimes or Sheldon and Leonard geeking out over sci-fi, geniuses are central figures on many of television’s most popular series. They are often enigmatic, displaying superhuman intellect while struggling with mundane aspects of daily life. This collection of new essays explores why TV geniuses fascinate us and how they shape our perceptions of what it means to be highly intelligent. Examining series like Criminal Minds, The Big Bang Theory, Bones, Elementary, Fringe, House, The Mentalist, Monk, Sherlock, Leverage and others, scholars from a variety of disciplines discuss how television both reflects and informs our cultural understanding of genius.

This collection examines the nerd and/or geek stereotype in popular culture today. Utilizing the media—film, TV, YouTube, Twitter, fiction—that often defines daily lives, the contributors interrogate what it means to be labeled a “nerd” or “geek.” While the nerd/geek that is so easily recognized now is assuredly a twenty-first century construct, an examination of the terms’ history brings a greater understanding of their evolution. From sports to slasher films, Age of the Geek establishes a dialogue with texts as varied as the depictions of “nerd” or “geek” stereotypes.

Women, Portraiture and the Crisis of Identity in Victorian England shows the effect of celebrity and scandal on four prominent Victorian women: Mary Elizabeth Braddon, Lady Dilke, Millicent Garrett Fawcett, and Sarah Grand. Colleen Denney explores how these women used their portraits as tools of persuasion, performing a domestic masquerade to secure privacy and acceptance, or sites of resistance, tearing down male constructions of female propriety and fighting Victorian stereotypes of intellectual women.
