Type A: Humanities - Young Adult Literature

English 3919 Young Adult Literature
Texts for young adults represent the fastest growing sector of the publishing market, and currently attract readers far beyond the “young adult” age group. Focusing on the emergence of Young Adult (YA) literature in the twentieth century, and on more current works, we will analyze texts such as novels, graphic novels, drama, and film and television, addressing such topics as identity formation, social groups, censorship, and gendering.
