Tweenhood : Femininity and Celebrity in Tween Popular Culture - by Melanie Kennedy (Hardcover)
About this item
Tweenhood offers a timely examination of mainstream pre-adolescent girls' films, television programmes, celebrities and extra-texts from 2004 onwards, including "princess" narratives The Prince & Me (2004, 2006, 2008, 2010) and A Cinderella Story (2004, 2008, 2011), and Disney Channel programming and films, Hannah Montana (2006-2011) and Camp Rock (2008, 2010). The book forges a dialogue between postfeminism, film and television, celebrity, and the figure of the tween, in order to examine how the tween is both constructed and addressed by these media texts, highlighting the centrality of femininity and celebrity within tween popular culture.
