Shania Montúfar’s work, entitled “Finding One’s Place in America: Gender, Generations, and Latinx Family Heritage,” studies the PEW survey data to assess the role that gender, immigrant generations and family heritage played in their attitudes as they try to find their place in America.

Kimberly Ramos presents “Killing Like a Girl: 'Jennifer’s Body' Through the Lens of Phenomenological Existentialism,” in which they argue that the 2009 film “Jennifer’s Body” appeals to its modern audience in that it accurately portrays the current existential state of being a woman as both empowered and oppressed.
