A Place Where Girls' Voices are Heard

The Scholarship

Generating scholarship is a central part of the TGP experience where Faculty, Teaching and Research Assistants known as Emerging Girlhood Scholars, conduct research in and on the Project. Scholarship generated by TGP is used to evolve the Project and advance knowledge produced with and about girls’ lives. Take the time to explore some of the amazing scholarship we've created so far.

THE CONFERENCE

In 2018, in celebration of ten years of transformative teaching, learning, service and feminist scholarship, TGP brought together Girlhood scholars, girl-serving organizations, change makers, and TGP alumni for a conference featuring speakers Dr. Dominique Hill and Councilor Ayanna Pressley.

Topics included:

  • An Enthusiastic Yes: Healthy Relationships and Consent

  • The Girlhood Project Tool Box: Activities for Engaging our whole selves

  • The Personal is Political: Engaging Girls in Community Advocacy

  • Queering Identity: Breaking the Binary of Girlhood

  • Making for Social Change

THE ARTICLE

In 2020, The Girlhood Project was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing faculty, facilitators, and students alike to transition online almost overnight. In the article "The Girlhood Project: Pivoting our Model with Girls During COVID-19", we describe how we adapted TGP's model to a virtual and synchronous platform for students during COVID-19 and supported their learning competencies. We reflect critically on this experience by centering the voices and perspectives of girls, students, and professors.

 

The article was published in Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal (Volume 13, Issue 3) in December 2020. It can be accessed online by clicking the link below.

THE ZINE

In 2021, our Intern (Fia Walklet) decided to create The Girlhood Project's first ever Zine, Girlhood Pulp. She was inspired by an article that positioned Zines as catalysts for activism, subverting mainstream print media's historical de-centering of marginalized voices, including girls' voices. Our 2021 students each submitted a piece responding to the girl-specific issues we covered in our course.
