SBVC political science professor Dr. Jeffrey Demsky was selected to present a paper to a virtual human rights conference hosted by France’s University of Le Mans last June. Entitled “Prostitutes, Rape Bait, and Assassins,” he analyzed dehumanizing portrayals of Vietnamese women in Hollywood war films. “Such depictions have memorializing value,” he said in his presentation. “The onscreen fantasies, produced by men, and primarily for male consumption, cinematically re-assert American troops’ patriarchy, and, potency, over the Vietnamese people.” Dr. Demsky also recently published a book about Holocaust memorialization, and has a forthcoming article, “Achoo! Achoo! Let’s Blame the Jews: Antisemitism in COVID-19 Cartoons and Memes.”
