This volume is a collection of 18 original essays that, woven together, make a central claim: As a consequence of the new driving logics of globalization, transnationalism, And The digital age, all late-modern institutions and forms of association and affiliation are coalescing under the banner of new identities. These logics have unsettled the processes of the social integration of modern subjects into late-modern institutions. The modern subject is being remade and reproduced in a context in which the relations between government, society, The individual, and market forces have undergone profound transformations and reorganization. As such, critical/cultural theory is needed to address these transformations in a way that moves beyond dystopian or utopian frameworks, and instead point To The particularities that make this moment (un)livable. Hence, this volume is divided into four sections in which contributors map these new, volatile developments across the domains of disciplinary history, technology, The body, and neoliberal programs of cultural and economic globalization.

Mediated Girlhoods, Volume 2 is an anthology devoted to scholarship on girls' media culture. Taking a cultural studies approach, it includes studies of girls' media representations, girls' media consumption, and girls' media production. In an attempt to push research on girls' media culture in new directions, it responds to criticisms of previous research in this field by including studies of girls who are not white, middle-class, heterosexual, cisgender, or Western. Approaching girlhood, media, and methodology broadly, Mediated Girlhoods includes studies of such previously unexplored topics as girls' mimetic communication via Tumblr, the girlyboy in independent Filipino cinema, Qatari girls' film production, trans girlhood in advertising, Canadian girls' feminist activism, and the new girl subject imagined in Disney's Cinderella (2015). Mediated Girlhoods, Volume 2 is appropriate for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, particularly graduate seminars exploring girlhood, media, and culture; youth media; youth cultures; and gender and media; and undergraduate courses housed within the following departments: media studies, communication studies, cultural studies, women's and gender studies, sociology, literature, history, education, and psychology.

Since the early 2000s, Disney Channel has been dominated by original live-action programming popular among tween girls. The shows’ successes rely not only on their popularity among girl audiences, but also on the development of star personae by girl performers, such as Raven-Symoné, Miley Cyrus, and Selena Gomez. In addition, these programs and their performers have spawned lucrative media and merchandising franchises for the Walt Disney Company. This book includes analyses of this Disney Channel programming, as well as Disney corporate reports and executive statements, together with Disney Channel stars’ performances, promotional appearances, media production, philanthropic efforts, and entrepreneurism. Analyzing these texts, performances, activities, and personae, it considers the ways in which they reproduce celebrity, visibility, and feminine performativity as central to successful twenty-first century girlhood.

Voicing Girlhood In Popular Music

This interdisciplinary volume explores the girl’s voice and the construction of girlhood in contemporary popular music, visiting girls as musicians, activists, and performers through topics that range from female vocal development during adolescence to girls’ online media culture. While girls’ voices are more prominent than ever in popular music culture, the specific sonic character of the young female voice is routinely denied authority. Decades old clichés of girls as frivolous, silly, and deserving of contempt prevail in mainstream popular image and sound. Nevertheless, girls find ways to raise their voices and make themselves heard. This volume explores the contemporary girl’s voice to illuminate the way ideals of girlhood are historically specific, and the way adults frame and construct girlhood to both valorize and vilify girls and women. Interrogating popular music, childhood, and gender, it analyzes the history of the all-girl band from the Runaways to the present; the changing anatomy of a girl’s voice throughout adolescence; girl’s participatory culture via youtube and rock camps, and representations of the girl’s voice in other media like audiobooks, film, and television. Essays consider girl performers like Jackie Evancho and Lorde, and all-girl bands like Sleater Kinney, The Slits and Warpaint, as well as performative 'girlishness' in the voices of female vocalists like Joni Mitchell, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Kathleen Hanna, and Rebecca Black. Participating in girl studies within and beyond the field of music, this book unites scholarly perspectives from disciplines such as musicology, ethnomusicology, comparative literature, women’s and gender studies, media studies, and education to investigate the importance of girls’ voices in popular music, and to help unravel the complexities bound up in music and girlhood in the contemporary contexts of North America and the United Kingdom.

Mediated Boyhoods: Boys, Teens, and Young Men in Popular Media and Culture brings together work from various disciplines that explores the relationships among the everyday lives of boys and such media platforms as television, films, games, sports, music, urban and suburban culture, fashion, young adult novels, Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube. Offering a comprehensive overview of boyhood studies, chapters consider questions about the current state of boyhood as it is represented in the popular media; the ways that boys are influenced by and work to influence popular culture; the ways that popular texts often reflect adult expectations, anxieties, and prejudices about boys and boyhood; and the ways that boys, teens, and young men are often able to reflect upon and to act, sometimes unpredictably, to resist, subvert, or re-imagine and re-create popular culture and media. The volume serves as a companion to Mediated Girl hoods: New Explorations of Girls' Media Culture Annette Wannamaker is Associate Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature at Eastern Michigan University, where she also serves as the coordinator of children's literature studies.

Sexy Girls, Heroes and Funny Losers: Gender Representations in Children's TV around the World presents the most comprehensive study to date of gender images on children's television. Conducted in 24 countries around the world, the study employed different methodologies and analyses. The findings illustrate how stereotypes of femininity and masculinity are constructed and promoted to children. It presents findings that may well require even the most cynical observer to admit that, despite some great strides, children's television worldwide is still a very conservative force that needs to be reimagined and transformed!

This book passionately illustrates why the celebration of Black girlhood is essential. Based on the principles and practices of a Black girl-centered program, it examines how performances of everyday Black girlhood are mediated by popular culture, personal truths, and lived experiences, and how the discussion and critique of these factors can be a great asset in the celebration of Black girls. Drawing on scholarship from women's studies, African American studies, and education, the book skillfully joins poetry, autobiographical vignettes, and keen observations into a wholehearted, participatory celebration of Black girls in a context of hip-hop feminism and critical pedagogy. Through humor, honesty, and disciplined research it argues that hip-hop is not only music, but also an effective way of working with Black girls. Black Girlhood Celebration recognizes the everyday work many young women of color are doing, outside of mainstream categories, to create social change by painting an unconventional picture of how complex - and necessary - the goal of Black girl celebration can be.

'Girl Power': Girls Reinventing Girlhood examines the identity practices of girls who have grown up in the context of 'girl power' culture. The book asks whether - and which - girls have benefited from this feminist-inspired movement. Can girls truly become anything they want, as suggested by those who claim that the traditional mandate of femininity - compliance to male interests - is a thing of the past? To address such questions, the authors distinguish between 'girlhood' as a cultural ideal, and girls as the embodied agents through which girlhood becomes a social accomplishment. The book identifies significant issues for parents and teachers of girls, and offers suggestions for 'critical social literacy' as a classroom practice that recognizes the ways popular culture mediates young people's understanding of gender. 'Girl Power' will be of interest to researchers of contemporary gender identities, as well as educational professionals and adult girl advocates. It is relevant for students in gender studies and teacher-education courses, as well as graduate student researchers.

In today's society, more and more mass media and popular culture is being produced for, about, and by pre-adolescent and adolescent girls than ever before. “Girls” (and/or their behavior, dress, relationships, education, and more) have driven investigative documentaries and fueled plot lines for mainstream films and prime-time television dramas. In addition, young women have become a valuable target market as the rise of “girl power” scripted young women as—at once—a commercially lucrative and hyper-sexualized population. Reaction to the “new” girl of the millennium has been as diverse as it has been swift, due in part to the unclear definition of what constitutes a “girl.” Girlhood is a collection of essays on girls, girlhood, and girl culture. Drawing from the works of national and international scholars, this book focuses on the multifaceted nature of girls' lived experiences. Examined is racism, sexism, and classism; girlhood and girl gangs; the power and politics of schoolgirl style; encounters with violence; chatrooms; sexuality; and identity formation and popular culture. This groundbreaking collection offers a complicated portrait of girls in the twenty-first century: good girls and bad girls, girls who are creating their own girl culture and giving a whole new meaning to girl power. These provocative essays cover all aspects of girlhood as they bring to life the ever-changing identities of today's young women. Yasmin Jiwani received a Doctor of Philosophy in communication studies from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. She is the author of Discourses of Denial: Uncovering Race, Gender, and Violence in Society. Claudia Mitchell, PhD, is a professor and chair in the faculty of education at the University of Natal, involved in developing a curriculum on girl-child education in Zambi.
