20131125 amanda-andersonWashington State Community College (WSCC) is proud to announce that Amanda Anderson has earned her doctorate. Anderson, a full-time English Faculty member at WSCC, recently defended her dissertation at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. She commented that her dissertation, titled Scripts that Tame Us: 'Beauty and the Beast' as Vehicle for Cultural Construction and Deconstruction, is a "multidisciplinary project that offers insight as to the power revised texts have over their precursor texts and their producing culture." Her interesting look into a beloved classic reveals that "not only does culture dictate the tales we tell, but also that the tales we tell dictate our cultural identity." She also explored the connotations of the Beats as "other" and the feminine ideal that Belle embodies. Anderson's insightful look into the text of 'Beauty and the Beast' was well received and WSCC is happy to congratulate her on this impressive accomplishment.
