Girlhood and the Plastic Image

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


“A timely and provocative contribution to both girls studies and media studies. Girlhood ant the Plastic Image takes the powerful modern image of the adolescent girl as a new entry point for discussing the relations between gender, identity, and new media. In the process, this book troubles hierarchies at the heart of new media studies and questions some of girls studies’ central identity claims.”—Catherine Driscoll, associate professor of gender and cultural studies, University of Sydney "Heather Warren-Crow eloquently demonstrates that girlhood is central to discourse about digital media. This provocative and original book illuminates the many ways in which our understanding of digital images is shaped by notions of age and gender. Girlhood and the Plastic Image is an important contribution to both girlhood studies and the study of digital media.”—Kristen Hatch, assistant professor of film and media studies, University of California, Irvine
