Reema Faris, PhD Candidate

June 06, 2016

We’d like to extend extra-huge congratulations to Reema Faris, who has been accepted as a 2016 PhD candidate by the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies at SFU.

Reema will be looking at the relevance of feminism today and whether popular culture undermines the continuing search for social justice and equality, particularly for women and other marginalized populations. She will focus on the way in which women perceive and interpret images and narratives of the female experience that pop culture disseminates.  Reema names this phenomenon “Feminism in the Age of Spectacle”.  Way to go Reema!
