Captain Jack and Modern Masculinity from How Doctor Who Redefined Masculinity

 

Transcript:

Before we knew that John Hurt existed, we knew Eccelston the Warrior Doctor. He was really someone who was left with the trauma of having made that decision. We didn’t know that a different version of him had made it. So, he defined himself as well as a Warrior and then we have our beloved David — at least, my beloved David — who is, I would say, is a representation of both the Warrior and the Lone Wolf, but I’m going to add, he’s got Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, much more than Eccelston revels it. He’s really talking about how bad he feels about what happened and I think that’s what endeared him to so many people — his ability to share his emotions. Which, I think, is one of the definitions, if we go back to Empathy, that defines a modern “Man” and I think that’s why he captured so many people as quite a favorite Doctor in this period.

Watch this entire presentation – Doctor Who: Feminism in the Whoniverse with Dr. Rosanne Welch

Dr. Rosanne Welch (http://rosannewelch.com) speaks on “Feminism in the Whoniverse” of Doctor Who, the BBC television program now in its 50th year. She reviews each of the Doctor’s female companions and speaks on how they are represented in the program and how they represented the women of their respective periods.

Transcript:

…And that speaks to a lot of what is going on, because in this time period, think about all the famous women science fiction writers — and it’s a big deal that Moffat went and got Neil Gaiman to do the show and everyone was “Ooo, Neil Gaiman wrote and episode.” In the time the show’s been on the air Octavia Butler was alive — not anymore but she was, right? Ursula Le Guin was alive. There are lots of female science fiction writers out there that they could have picked, but they never did. They picked 5 women out of about 807 episodes. So, I don’t think it takes women to write cool women, but, then again, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I wasn’t thinking about that. But to me that’s the story of feminism on Doctor Who.

Feminism in the Whoniverse was presented at the Cal Poly Pomona University Library where Dr. Welch teaches in the IGE (Interdisciplinary General Education) program.

Warrior Doctors from How Doctor Who Redefined Masculinity

 

Transcript:

Gee whiz. In “Day of the Doctor” he named himself the warrior doctor. He literally says it out loud. So, this is his definition because he is the person in that Time War that had to make the big choice of destroying the world. Essentially he’s Truman deciding whether or not to drop the atomic bomb, but in this case, it’s going to destroy not just Japan but but America, too and he has to decide to do that in order to make sure the bad guys don’t win. That’a huge job. We ask men to be warriors and that means they are going to go out in the world we ask them to kill for us and that is a huge responsibility to put on someone. So, I think it’s really interesting that that’s reflected in this later batch of Doctors. Imagine, we’re dealing in a world where we’ve been at war for the last eight years. Right? So, we’ve been more involved in war than we had been in the 60’s and 70’s. I have to say, it was impressive we got John Hurt. I just had to flip over her to Derrick Jacobi for a minute, because this shows us the power of new Who. These are huge names to do a television program. So, I just love that. If you haven’t seen him as The Master, you must because he is marvelous and if you havne’t seen I, Claudius, you must, because he’s marvelous.

Transcript:

I do want to talk about this briefly. It should not take women writers to write interesting women characters. We shouldn’t need that. In 50 years of Doctor Who, guess how many female writers they’ve bought? How may women have written episodes of Doctor Who in 50 years? 2? A little bit higher. 5! 50 years. 50 years, they have only found 5 women  that they’ve let write this program and that’s them right there. Go back to 1966. Once in 1985. Twice in 1985. Excuse me. Once in 1989 and twice in 2007. Now Helen Raynor wrote for Torchwood, which was Russell T Davies spin off, so he appreciated her work, obviously, and hired her again. Again, a gay male hired the women to write more episodes than any other female had ever written for that franchise.

Feminism in the Whoniverse was presented at the Cal Poly Pomona University Library where Dr. Welch teaches in the IGE (Interdisciplinary General Education) program.

Article: New Media, Same Old Misogyny by Dr. Rosanne Welch for Garnet News

New Media, Same Old Misogyny
Sometimes you have to accomplish nothing in order to take credit for something

For another example of old-world misogyny planting its flag in the new world of online media, witness the work of Sam Parr, founder of Hustle Con, a conference that promises “the best non-technical founders (a.k.a. hustlers)” who’ll show you “how they got started and give practical advice on growing your startup.”

New Media, Same Old Misogyny by Dr. Rosanne Welch for Garnet News

Parr recently posted a piece entitled 10 Amazing Entrepreneurs Who Had Accomplished Nothing By Age 30 on his site. The list offered subscribers proof that “you don’t have to be a prodigy to succeed” because those who made his list “had accomplished next to nothing before the age of 30.”

The list managed to include the likes of Henry Ford and Sam Walton (each of whom began their multi-million dollar companies over the age of 40) but did not include a single female entrepreneur, from any era. Some subscribers, such as Abigail Mela Wick, a PR and market researcher in Berlin quickly noticed the lack of female representation, “I liked this article until I realized there weren’t any women in this list.”
