We are looking for one or two additional members to join a pre-constituted roundtable for the Inernation Girlhood Studies Association 2019 conference at Notre Dame University. Details are in the link below:


Our proposed topic is about cultural depictions of teen girls' sexuality and how films/TV series inflect it differently along lines of race, class, and sexual orientation. Also of concern are the reception of such representations/takeaway experiences that teen girls have with these media. 

Ideal members to join the roundtable will be faculty or graduate students in media studies, gender studies, anthropology, education, or a related field. Please contact me at jaelrod@umich.edu by the deadline with a brief bio of background and interests if you are wiling to participate.
