We are pleased to announce that the latest issue of Girlhood Studies has been published by Berghahn Journals. This special issue is titled Cultural Studies and the Re-description of Girls in Crisis. Contributions to this issue offer what the guest editors refer to as a re-description of girls in crisis. In so doing not only do they offer challenges to definitions of crisis, they also deepen our understanding of what transformative practices might look like.
