Girls, Cultural Productions, and Resistance
Girls, Cultural Productions, and Resistance brings together scholars from across the academy to explore the multifaceted ways that contemporary girls challenge and disrupt normative gender scripts and representations. By adopting ethnographic methodologies and/or feminist pedagogies, the authors collaborate with girls from various ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, highlighting these girls’ affective agency as they remake femininity from the ground up. From pre-school through college, these girls engage in subversive gender work through writing, blogging, talking, video production, game design, scouting, business organizing, roller derby, and yoga. This groundbreaking collection provides a roadmap for academics and practitioners trying to understand the landscape of girlhood today.
