Introduces new conceptual frameworks for girls’ studies.
Presenting cutting-edge research from transnational scholars and activists, Difficult Dialogues about Twenty-First-Century Girls introduces original methodologies and girl-centered program design to the field of girls’ studies. The editors pair progressive girls’ studies research on topics such as differential privilege, voice, cultural values, and access to material resources, with provocative questions in order to further the thinking about issues that are often marginalized or overlooked in feminist domains. In addition, the book serves as a manual for educators and activists, designed to promote critical discussions that are accessible and includes a final dialogue with contemporary scholars about their work and the current direction of the field.
Donna Marie Johnson is an independent scholar, researcher, educator, and girls’ advocate. Alice E. Ginsberg is a Curricula Development and Teacher Education Specialist at the Center for Minority Serving Institutions at the University of Pennsylvania. Her books include Embracing Risk in Urban Education: Curiosity, Creativity, and Courage in the Era of “No Excuses” and Evolution of American Women’s Studies: Reflections on Triumphs, Controversies, and Change.
