With Mallory Young, I edited two collections on contemporary literature and film targeting young women: Chick Lit: The New Woman's Fiction and Chick Flicks: Contemporary Women at the Movies. Click here to learn more.

My other books have focused on fashion and feminist theory. You can access them here.
