Olivia Tarplin (Global Studies/Gender Studies student who graduated last spring) has transformed her senior thesis on feminist porn into a TEDx talk, which she will be delivering this weekend. If you don’t know about the strange TEDx thing ( ), people do talks on “how to change the world” type themes and the talks are recorded and circulate on their online channel. (scroll down to find Olivia in the list of speakers – her talk is called ‘Feminist Porn: Shifting Our Sexual Culture’).

So yes, evidence that one can do something with their senior thesis after all!
