Global Girlhoods: From Imaginings to Embodied Experiences


Project Summary:

A symposium that seeks to reposition, relocate, and reframe girls within the context of both girl and child studies by asking: How do we delineate the boundaries of girlhood? Which girls are visible and which are invisible in these boundaries? What are the everyday practices of actual girls that work to challenge these narrow definitions and representations? How do girls themselves negotiate, engage, take up, resist, or reassemble the cultural frames of girlhood offered to them? What do girls’ responses reveal about this contemporary moment of girlhood?
