ENG 264LEC Young Adult Literature

Lecture

This course surveys popular young adult literature, both contemporary (e.g. *The Hunger Games*, *Thirteen Reasons Why*) and historical (*Oliver Twist*, *Alice in Wonderland*). Students will learn how to analyze and write about the relationship between literary texts and the cultural problems they represent, and specifically, how YA fiction raises questions of gender definition, sexuality, race and ethnicity, body image, shaming practices, generational conflicts, and social pressure.
