|Notes:||"The chapters in this book traverse disciplinary fields, sampling a wide range of approaches and theoretical perspectives. Most of these essays were workshopped at the "Girls, Texts, Cultures" symposium at the University of Winnipeg in 2010. This symposium was designed to generate and sustain dialogues between two groups of scholars: those focusing on texts for and about girls, and those who investigate contemporary girlhoods."--Introduction.|
