News

Laurel Hart, postdoctoral student with our Department of Integrated Studies in Education (DISE), was the guest editor for the newest edition of Girlhood Studies: An interdisciplinary journal, titled Technologies of Nonviolence: Reimagining Mobile and Social Media Practices in the Lives of Girls and Young Women.
 
Girlhood Studies celebrates 10 years of publication this year. This special issue of Girlhood Studies seeks to examine the ways in which the notion of technologies of non-violence might lead to a re-imagining of both urban and rural spaces as sites of networked resistance and transformation for girls and young women. 
 
Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 2008 by Jackie Kirk, Adjunct Professor with McGill's Faculty of Education, and published by Berghahn Books. The journal discusses girlhood in the fields of education, social service, and health care. 

Girlhood Studies' editor-in-chief is Claudia Mitchell, James McGill Professor with McGill's Faculty of Education, and Director of the McGill University Institute for Human Development and Well-Being (IHDW). Founder Jackie Kirk was tragically killed during a International Rescue Committee (IRC) aid mission in Afghanistan in August, 2008. Professor Kirk was a worldwide authority on education in post-conflict situations, with a particular interest in the education of girls. Girlhood Studies received the Best New Journal in the Social Sciences & Humanities from the Association of American Publishers in 2009.
