Students and scholars interested in the emerging area of girlhood studies will be glad to learn of the Library’s recent acquisition of Girlhood Studies, the leading peer-reviewed journal for critical and interdisciplinary discussions of girlhood.
Girlhood Studies includes current research and reflections on girls’ lives. It may be of particular interest to those studying or researching in the areas of women’s studies, family studies, education, sociology, psychology, and media studies.
Topics covered in the journal include:
Girlhood Studies is "international and interdisciplinary in scope" and "committed to feminist, anti-oppression, anti-discrimination approaches." It was the 2010 winner of the Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers’ best new journal award and the 2009 winner of the Association of American Publishers/Professional and Scholarly Publishing’s Prose Award for the best new journal in the social sciences and humanities.
