520    This book explores contemporary transformations of the 
       female Bildungsroman, showing that the intersection of the
       genre and gender brought to critical attention in the 
       context of second wave feminism remains of equal 
       importance in the era of postfeminism. The female Bildung 
       narrative has acquired an important position in twentieth 
       - and twenty-first century literature through its 
       continuing depiction of female self-discovery and 
       emancipation as a process of negotiating the traditional 
       divisions of female and male roles in relation to the 
       private and public spaces. Recognizing the seminal 
       contribution of feminist criticism to the definition of 
       the genre and the role of feminist cultural processes in 
       its thematic developments, this volume investigates more 
       recent influences on the female Bildung narrative and the 
       influence of the classic female Bildungsroman on 
       contemporary cultural texts. As a collection of fifteen 
       essays written by international scholars, the book offers 
       a representative sample of the narratives of female 
       development, presenting a variety of genres, including the
       novel, the short story, autobiography, TV series, and 
       Internet video blogs, and theoretical frameworks, adopting
       hermeneutic, postcolonial, feminist, and postfeminist 
       perspectives. In its diversity, this volume reveals that, 
       despite the ongoing process of women's emancipation, the 
       heroine's struggle with the private/public divide has 
       remained, throughout the twentieth century and in the 
       first decades of the new millennium, a central issue in 
       stories about the female quest for self-definition. The 
       book will be of interest to scholars and students in the 
       fields of literary, women and gender studies, particularly
       those interested in the narratives of female development 
       that represent American and British cultural contexts
