This is a short list of my pieces that have been published in other places.
"Why Romance Movies May Be A Social Problem" - This article, published in Elyakim Kislev's blog, Happy Singlehood, in Psychology Today, discusses the potential ramifications of the messages Hollywood gives us about romance.
"Changing the Language of Singlehood" - This altered excerpt from by book, also featured in Psychology Today, discusses how we need to change our language when talking about singlehood.
"Relationship Status" - This short story, published in Singular Magazine, revolves around a singleton, fresh off a breakup, who realizes that romance isn't necessarily all it's cracked up to be.
"Singles Discrimination in the Academic World" - You'd think that in academia, a bastion of progressive thinking, singles might catch a break. But, sadly, it persists even among scholars. Check this piece out, published in Singular Magazine.
"Singlism in the Simpsons" - The Simpsons is one of my favorite shows. But the single characters are portrayed in stereotypical terms. This Singular Magazine article breaks that down.
"Why Politicians Will Eventually Start to Pay Attention to Singles" - Let's face it. From politicians' constant use of the word "family" to laws that favor the married, singles get shortchanged. This Unmarried Equality piece poses the theory that as marital rates continue to decline, more singletons will hold positions in public office, and those policies will one day favor singles.
"How to be a Happy Bachelor Virtual Book Launch" - This is a presentation given on August 14, 2021 via Zoom during which I launched How to be a Happy Bachelor. Content includes a primer on singlism, matrimania, and amatonormativity, as well as a short reading from the book.
"Are Nuclear Families the Only People That Count?" - This article was published in the September 2021 issue of Dialogue: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Popular Culture and Pedagogy.
"Living Single and Alone during COVID" - This is a presentation given on October 21, 2021 to faculty and staff at the University of the District of Columbia. Participants learned strategies they can use to thrive during singlehood, whether it lasts for now or forever.
The Why - I was interviewed on Newsy's show, "The Why," about my work relating to singlehood. Thank you, Stefani Young, for setting it up, and to Tatevik Aprikyan for conducting the interview!
