Representing Girlhood in Popular Culture

Call for Chapter Abstracts for Edited Collection, to be part of the Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series.

Contemporary popular culture texts increasingly showcase representations of girls and young women in a myriad of ways. There are common tropes that we as audiences have come to expect in stories of girlhood, which usually concern navigating friendships, self-discovery, familial drama, teenage discontent, etc., packaged in familiar frames about suburban school experiences, or in fantastical and bold tales in fantasy and science fiction.

Thinking about literature to write history : common paths, tensions, and encounters between historical and literary writings

Revue Post-Scriptum
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

This Post-Scriptum’s conference wishes to address different ways in which the relationships between history and literature are thought out as sources of tensions, interrogations, and mutual influences. Two questions underlie this perspective: how can literary texts deal with historical events, and, conversely, in what way(s) works of historiography borrow elements from literature, both formal and narrative? Hence, problems that are related to these questions can be addressed. These problems concern the theoretical, formal, narratological, epistemological, etc. consequences of the encounters between history and literature.
