Call for Papers

How has girls' culture changed over the last century? How do girls from
different racial and ethnic groups constitute cultures that are distinct
from mainstream white girls' culture? How have girls been influenced by
the material culture around them? What is girls' culture? How is
girls' culture exclusive from boys' culture? These are a few of the
questions that I seek to answer in a proposed anthology about
twentieth-century American girls' culture. Issues that might be
discussed include, but are not limited to, girls' material culture,
girls' reading, girls' athletics, girls' popular culture, and girls'
consumerism. Essays (25 to 30 pages, not including notes and works
cited) should be broadly informed by the insights of interdisciplinary
and cultural studies. Along with careful theoretical and historical
analysis, I welcome explorations that highlight questions of power,
race, sexuality, and gender. Please send completed papers (and an
abstract of 250-300 words and curriculum vitae) by 1 January 1997 to
Professor Sherrie A. Inness, Miami University, Department of English,
1601 Peck Boulevard, Hamilton, OH 45011 ( Early
submissions are encouraged.
