Announcing the Inaugural John Money Fellow

The Kinsey Institute is pleased to announce Sarah Lindsley as the inaugural winner of the John Money Fellowship for Students of Sexology.

Ms. Sarah Lindsley, graduate student in the Department of History at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, was selected as the inaugural recipient of the 2009 John Money Fellowship for Scholars of Sexology at The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction.

Ms. Sarah Lindsley’s project is titled Sexuality and the National Body: Men’s Magazines and Female Sexuality.  Her research explores debates surrounding the depiction of female sexuality in print from the 1930s to 1970s and how these led to social and moral conflicts over the meaning of sexuality, female imaging, and mass culture.

She will be using the collection to identify and analyze the modes of imaging the female body in publications as an erotic object designed to appeal to men, and how the modes have shifted or remained constant.

Ms. Lindsley  produced a bibliographical essay about the Kinsey Library collection of men’s magazines as part of her fellowship.
