Preadolescent Girls and the Presentation of Self: A Dramaturgical Perspective.
Moore, Lori; MacKinnon, David
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v47 n4 p309-24 Win 2001
Interviews and focus groups with five 9- and 10-year-old girls from rural Nova Scotia (Canada) clearly revealed the power and influence of the media in manipulating young girls' perceptions of themselves and others. Goffman's interactionist perspective of the "theatrical performance" provided a framework for the study. (Contains 47 references.) (Author/TD)
