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.

Gender Forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies

Celebrating Shakespeare's 450th birthday this issue of Gender Forum will focus on Shakespeare's plays and sonnets emphasizing the range of criticism and theory dealing with gender and sexuality. In order to widen the current discourse we encourage scholars to also consider early modern texts and their historical milieus about same-sex desire and recent critical and historical arguments about the construction of gay identity. We also encourage papers about modern adaptations looking at literary transformations of Shakespeare plays and sonnets by later women like Paula Vogel and gay artists from Oscar Wilde to Gus van Sant.

The 'Transnational turn' in literary studies has been the focus of intense debate and sustained reflection in recent years, as have critical re-evaluations of Modernism's transnational scope. Scholarly interventions by Paul Giles (Transnationalism in Practice), Wai Chee Dimock (Through Other Continents: American Literature Across Deep Time), Jahan Ramanzani (A Transnational Poetics), and Paul Jay (Global Matters: The Transnational Turn in Literary Studies), among many others, establish the viability of transnationality as a disciplinary focus.
