66121-01 - Seminar: Anglophone Young Adult Romance in the 21st Century 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Francesca Pierini (francesca.pierini@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt This seminar offers a thematic survey of young adult literature. It focuses on the current century, the flourishing of young adult narratives that emerged in the wake of the 'Harry Potter' Book Series (1997-2007), and the most recent trends the genre is exploring.
"Unlike other types of popular romance, what defines young adult (YA) romance is its audience. This statement is obvious, but it also masks a complicated set of conventions and assumptions that reflect changing ideologies concerning our collective notion of 'teenagers' and what constitutes 'appropriate' reading material for them" (Allen 2021: 168). Matters get significantly more complicated if we take into consideration the recently discovered statistical fact according to which 55 per cent of YA readership is constituted by adults (Bowker Market Research, 2012).
Lernziele By the end of the semester, students will…
• Be familiar with the definitions, development, and cultural significance of YA romance fiction
• Be able to critically evaluate representative texts of the genre.
• Have read YA romance novels and examined these, through writing and discussion, as literary and cultural texts in order to explore the complex relationship between popular YA romance literature and its readership.
Literatur Students will choose and read three novels out of the list below. In addition, they will read the secondary article or book chapter paired with each chosen novel and uploaded on ADAM by the instructor.
