Young Adult Fiction - ENGL706

This unit examines some major themes and concerns associated with young adult fiction as a field of study: self-definition and subjectivity; exploring sexuality and writing the body; social power and social responsibility; representations of self and society; and relationships with dominant ideologies of twentieth century children's literature. Students will explore these themes through research that will give shape to their own individual projects.
