ENG 372 - Young Adult Literature

A critical examination of young adult literature as a category of literature that resists easy definition, but requires careful scrutiny in the changing atmosphere of the 21st century literacy. Students read widely in the field in order to establish generic characteristics of the literature; common archetypes and themes; rhetorical elements of author, audience, and message; and the popular, academic, and critical reception of young adult books.
