Jillian Schedneck – 3MT Finalists 2012

Jillian Schedneck

3MT topic: Representing Themselves: Emirati Women and Creative Expression

Discipline: Gender Studies and Social Analysis

Faculty: Humanities and Social Sciences

Supervisors: Dr. Megan Warin and Dr. Anna Szorenyi

Project Summary:

I am researching how national female artists in the United Arab Emirates are affected by other representations of themselves, and how they represent themselves to others. This work is important because it stresses how both negative and positive representations affect different groups, and how these representations are linked to power and agency in the world. I have recently published a travel memoir about this topic called Abu Dhabi Days, Dubai Nights.
