An international interdisciplinary conference hosted by the Centre for Culture, Media and Creative Industries and the Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College, London.

Dates: 13/14th September 2012

Location: King’s College London, Strand Campus

This conference seeks to bring together current research exploring the relationship between contemporary girlhood and digital culture, in a transnational frame.  Drawing on approaches from the arts, humanities and social sciences the conference will look at how contemporary transformations and transnational interconnections may be challenging existing social and cultural categories, power structures and global hegemonies. The conference will address the following questions:

• What are the key debates in current research on girls, young women and digital culture?

• How might a transnational lens raise new questions, and what new ideas does it make thinkable?

• Is digital culture global culture?

• How does the development of new digital technologies affects notions and experiences of girlhood?

• How are girls using new digital technologies?

• How do ideas and practices move across national borders?

• What effects do transnational interconnections have on girlhood and digital culture?

Speakers include:

Lisa Nakamura, University of Illinois

Shani Orgad, LSE

Jessica Ringrose, Institute of Education
