Girls and girlhood are fast emerging as critical subjects of inquiry. This workshop explores the implications of girls’ activities and experiences upon broader social, global and transnational processes. It provides an opportunity for scholars across the social sciences, literature and history to compare methodologies and concepts for exploring girlhood mobility, including travel, migration, translocality, and networking, across diverse global contexts.

Organised by the Centre for Gender, Identity and Subjectivity (CGIS) and The Centre for Global History.

Generously supported by TORCH.

This event is free, but please register in advance. Spaces are limited.
