My current research project grows out of my doctoral study of teenage girls' magazines and their readers in the 1990s. I am currently working on a cultural history of young women's magazines in the 1960s, looking at the interrelationship between femininity, consumer culture and new models of subjectivity. The project draws across archive material of magazines and marketing promotions as well as oral histories of readers and journalists from the period.
