Scholarly Projects

I am currently at work on a book about tween musical cultures, rock camps for girls, and the emergence of new girl identities in relationship to popular music in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

I am also working on an article about race, heterosexuality and girlhood as it relates to the 1950s pop singing group, the Chordettes. Having returned in Sept 2013 from a teaching and research mission to Bahrain with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, I plan to not only present my work in a series of talks and discussions, but to write about the experience in relation to ideas about transnational girlhood identities and the global flow of popular music.
