Since the mid nineteenth century, American girls have had books written especially for them, often featuring the same characters who begin to feel like their friends, enemies, and overall substitute social cliques. From the perfect, golden-haired Christian in Martha Finley's nineteenth-century Elsie Dinsmore series to the imperfect high school beauties in Sara Shepard's recent Pretty Little Liars series, the young female heroines in American series fiction have undergone dramatic changes in the past 150 years, changes which have both reflected and modeled standards of behavior for America's tweens and teen girls.

POPPING THE QUESTION: THE QUESTION OF POPULAR CULTURE
Deadline for article submissions: November 30, 2014​
As a concept, the popular – or popular culture for that matter – has never ceased to be debatable and ambivalent. Although it has come to occupy a particular place under the spotlight over the past decades within the broad study of culture, such apparently privileged position has not deprived it of the manifold ambiguities, complexities or misconceptions that have often involved its general understanding (John Storey, 2012; Angela McRobbie, 1994; Andrew Ross, 1989; John Fiske, 1989).
