114th Annual Conference - Pasadena, California
Friday, November 11 - Sunday, November 13, 2016

Young Adult Literature

Presiding Officer: 
Maryna Matlock, The Ohio State University

Young Adult literature is home to a host of paradoxes. Inscribing the monstrous and yet rapturous, traumatizing and yet electrifying, self-alienated and yet self-conscious experience of adolescence, texts for and about young adults explore rich and radical liminalities. The Young Adult Literature session invites your proposal on any theme or topic of study pertaining to the vibrant field of YA literature and culture. We welcome engaging, provocative analyses of YA literature and texts (including graphic novels, comic books, video games, and/or films). Proposals attending to the conference theme "Archives, Libraries, Properties" are especially welcome.
