I am interested in girlhood and its media representations in relation to (post)feminist theory and activism. Specifically, I’d like to explore issues of cultural translation and transnational circulation, and how Anglo-American feminist theories adapt or are challenged by other contexts and experiences. I am also interested in the project’s use of qualitative methodologies in film and media studies
