Meg Tully studies women in comedy and their relationships to feminist politics. Her research lies at the intersections of feminist media criticism and critical rhetoric. Her current project examines comedians who adopt the trope of the trainwreck—excessive in need, sex, and madness—to demonstrate the disastrous consequences of growing up in postfeminist culture that both insists women are finally liberated and continues to police their choices. Her work has appeared in Women’s Studies in Communication and Critical Studies in Media Communication and examines feminist texts like Inside Amy Schumer and Bob’s Burgers. Tully’s most recent line of research traces white feminist rhetoric in pop culture through texts including Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Snatched, and Big Little Lies. She teaches Effective Communication (CAS 100C), Rhetoric and Civic Life (CAS 137H), and Public Address (CAS 475).
