Please join the College of Liberal Arts for the University Forum Lecture "The Disneyfication of Brideland: Creating the Ultimate Feminine Fantasy," a talk by Ericka Engstrom, professor, communication studies, UNLV.

Professor Engstorm's presentation explores how Disney themed weddings create an image of weddings (and love and marriage) as wonderful, idealized, and perfect. The visual marketing of Disney weddings and its “Disney Princesses” line of merchandise aimed at girls combine to reify the idea of “Brideland,” a utopian bridal fantasy. The speaker, author of The Bride Factory, discusses what the Disneyfication of weddings adds to the milieu of media portrayals of women, brides, and weddings.
