GWS 257 - Growing Up Girl

4 credits (Fall)
As an introduction to the subfield of Girls’ Studies, Growing Up Girl explores the impact of this feminine gender on the lives and outlooks of girls and girl-identified women. Drawing on historical and contemporary autobiographical texts, academic research, and popular media, we will examine how race, class, sexuality, and nationality shape girlhood’s meanings and opportunities in different social contexts.
