Elizabeth Whited used the television show Felicity as a case study to evaluate how male and female professors are portrayed on television. Whited first looked at television as a form of media, then how males and females are portrayed within this particular medium. She interrogated how male and female professors are discussed and viewed through literature before finally looking to see if what the literature says about male and female professors holds true in Felicity.
