A Womb with a View


Product Description
Product Details

Promotional Information

Pregnancy-and society's views about it-have changed drastically in the last half-century. Once a private, personal experience, the word "pregnancy" was considered inappropriate to be uttered within the popular 1950s TV show I Love Lucy. Today pregnancy is a celebrated spectacle where husbands and family are invited into the birthing room, and friends can even follow via social media. One aspect of pregnancy remains the same, however: it is life-changing for everyone involved.

About the Author

Laura Tropp, PhD, is associate professor and chair of the Communication Arts Department at Marymount Manhattan College, New York, NY.


"Tropp expands her analysis beyond the pregnant woman, arguing that cultural and market forces like reality television, pregnancy blogs, and the pregnancy advice market have created 'pregnancy voyeurs' who maintain the publicity of pregnancy through their spectatorship (p. 50). A Womb with a View does an excellent job of accounting for the multiplicity of actors invested in pregnancies and gives a great deal of attention to fathers' roles in public pregnancies. . . . [H]er critical analysis of pregnancy's publicity, her use of culturally relevant examples and her clear and accessible language make this text a valuable resource for students in media studies, women's and gender studies, and cultural studies." - Feminist Collections
