Abstract

New books for Parenthood issue of Oral History journal

Dear colleagues,

 

Alistair Thomson and I are editing a special 'parenthood' issue of the British journal Oral History, for publication in early 2019. We are currently soliciting reviews of books that deal with the history of parenting and/or the family using oral history interviews.

If you have recently published or are soon to publish a book that fits these parameters, please get in touch with me at carla.pascoe@unimelb.edu.au.

 

Regards,

Carla

Special Issue: The Girl in the Text (Girlhood Studies)

Dear Colleague,

This special issue of Girlhood Studies, close to double the length of previous issues, offers a blockbuster of articles on the theme of the girl in the text, guest edited by managing editor, Ann Smith. As the third in the Girlhood Studies 10th anniversary collection, this special issue was inspired in part by the spate of novels over the last few years that draw attention to the girl in their titles.

Volume 10, Issue 3: The Girl in the Text

Editorial, Girl (Not) Gone
