Call for Papers
Subject Fields: 
Childhood and Education, Cultural History / Studies, Popular Culture Studies, Sexuality Studies, Women's & Gender History / Studies

In the more than ten years since Marnina Gonick directly challenged the field by asking, “Are queer girls, girls?” (2006: 122), girls’ studies has grown into a formidable, expansive, and increasingly recognized area of academic discourse. Yet, while one might not characterize the “pairing of the words queer and girl” as “virtually unthinkable” in the scholarship today, as Susan Driver (2007: 28) found it then, there remains a distressing inability to dislodge girlhood from its (hetero)normative grounds.

There is growing consensus that historical reenactment embraces a wide range of forms – including live action role play, living history, historical reality TV and film, gaming, performance art, theater, historically-informed music performance, experimental archeology, pilgrimage, and battle reenactment. Reenactment practices and forms share a concern with authenticity, embodiment, affect, the performative and subjective. It might be argued that reenactment exemplifies a transnational form of popular historical knowledge making, representation and commemoration.

The Activist History Review invites article proposals for our January issue, “From Weinstein to Moore: Sexual Predation in American Culture.”

2017 will likely be remembered as the year when the floodgates opened. Whether we mark its beginning in 2014 with the dozens of women who spoke out against Bill Cosby’s abuse, the nineteen women who have accused President Trump of sexual assault, or the groundswell in women’s activism after the 2016 election, we are witnessing something unprecedented in 2017.
