Olga Ivashkevich - Girls, Cultural Productions, and Resistance
Olga Ivashkevich co-edited an interdisciplinary anthology Girls, Cultural Productions, and Resistance recently published by Peter Lang (with Michelle Bae, Mediated Youth Series). The book brought together scholars from diverse disciplines of gender studies, art, education, communication, English, psychology, philosophy, and health. This book draws on both ethnographic case studies and pedagogical collaborations with the girls from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and age groups. Anthology authors discuss the multifaceted ways in which their female subjects challenge and disrupt normative gender scripts and representations through blogging, writing, video making, game design, scouting, roller derby, and other avenues of creative expression.
