About this item

A modern-dayTaming of the Shrew that concludes at a high school prom. An agoraphobic Olivia from Twelfth Night sending video dispatches from her bedroom. A time-traveling Juliet trapped in an eternal battle with her greatest enemy, Romeo. Students, scholars, performers, and fans of Shakespeare have likely noticed that Shakespeare in popular culture is increasingly becoming the domain of the adolescent girl. Shakespeare and Girls’ Studies is a volume that engages the interdisciplinary field of Girls’ Studies to analyze adaptation and cultural appropriation of Shakespeare’s plays in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Shakespeare and Girls’ Studies argues that girls hold a central place in Shakespearean adaptation, taking as its subject the overlap between Shakespeare’s timeless girl heroines and contemporary popular culture that embraces figures like Juliet and Ophelia to understand and validate the experiences of girls. Focusing on film, television, young adult fiction, feminist pedagogy, and online video series aimed at girl readers and audiences, this volume explores the history of Shakespeare and girlhood and impact of girl cultures and concerns on Shakespeare’s afterlife in popular culture.
