The Introduction to Girls, Texts, Cultures provides a brief history of the field of girls' studies from its origins during the 1970s to its current standing as an interdisciplinary field of scholarly work. It addresses the combinations and interplay of disciplines that map the field and identifies key scholars. It discusses the relationships of feminism to girls' studies and provides an explication of the key terms of the collection: girls, texts, cultures.
