About the Event

There has been an explosion in girls studies work in the academy over the last decade. While scholars in the field have made important inroads in the theorising of girlhood, much work remains to be done. This one-day symposium has been designed around theorising girlhood sociologically and will involve speakers and discussion from academics across the UK.
