The Modern Girl Around the World: Consumption, Modernity and Globalization

People in this story

Professor Uta Poiger is the co-editor of The Modern Girl Around the World: Consumption, Modernity and Globalization (Duke University Press, 2008), which she edited along with Alys Eve Weinbaum, Lynn M. Thomas, Priti Ramamurthy, Madeline Yue Dong and Tani E. Barlow. This book examines the modern girl of the 1920s and 1930s, who appeared in city streets and cafes, in films, advertisements, and illustrated magazines from places as diverse as Beijing, Bombay, Tokyo and New York. Contributors demonstrate how the economic structures and cultural flows that shaped a particular form of modern femininity crossed national and imperial boundaries.
