New Book Out Now!


"American Taboo is a rare volume that offers a genuinely original contribution to the field of feminist media studies. Rosewarne takes the unpalatable of popular media and asks us to consider the ways in which representations of oral sex, abortion and vibrators can be understood in a wider debate about power and pleasure in contemporary culture. This book manages to be both shocking and scholarly, risqué and rigorous and as such it is a must-read for those interested in representations of gender in popular media culture."—Dr Rebecca Feasey, Bath Spa University, UK, Author of From Happy Homemaker to Desperate Housewives: Motherhood and Popular Television (Anthem Press 2012)
