Book Review of “The Edward Street Baby Farm” by Stella Budrikis published by Limina Journal (@LiminaJournal @FremantlePress)

Limina Journal Volume 26.2 (2021)

The Limina Journal is a refereed academic journal of historical and cultural studies based at the University of Western Australia. They recently published Volume 26.2 (2021), which presents two articles that “speak to women/feminist issues and to raising or re-imagining the female voice”. According to the journal’s website:

Svea Hundertmark’s article examines the reimagined female villain’s voice and representation in fairy tales, through their analysis of Disney’s Maleficent (2014). WhiteFeather Hunter provides insight into the history, identification, and ‘devianceness’ of contemporary technofeminist witches through a consideration of feminist scholars and witchcraft historiographers. Both of these articles highlight longstanding issues in the representation of womanhood and femininity, through fairy-tales and rape-culture, in the case of Hundertmark’s article, and the on-going battle around the autonomy of women’s bodies.

There are also six book reviews, among which is my piece on The Edward Street Baby Farm by Stella Budrikis (Fremantle Press, 2020). You can read the full review HERE.
