Fairy Tales on the Teen Screen : Rituals of Girlhood, Hardback Book

Fairy Tales on the Teen Screen : Rituals of Girlhood Hardback


This book examines how the fairy tale is currently being redeployed and revised on the contemporary teen screen.

The author redeploys Victor Turner's work on liminality for a feminist agenda, providing a new and productive method for thinking about girlhood onscreen.

While many studies of teenagehood and teen film briefly invoke Turner's concept, it remains an underdeveloped framework for thinking about youth onscreen.

The book's broad scope across teen media-including film, television, and online media-contributes to the need for contemporary analysis and theorisation of our multimedia cultural climate.
