Expanded Course Description
ENG 199 — Romancing the T(w)een: Love, Sex, and Gender in Young Adult Literature
J.K. Rowling became the world’s first billion-dollar author. Stephenie Meyer (author Twilight) earns screams from her devoted fan base. In the last decade, young adult literature has exploded in mainstream culture, becoming one of the most potent forces in publishing. As might be expected in literature written for youth ages 12-18, romantic love is often the driving force in the lives of the book’s characters. But is this young love as innocent as it appears? What is upheld as the romantic love ideal? In what ways is sex depicted? How do these constructs affect the treatment of gender roles? Examine contemporary young adult literature, searching for ways that authors reinforce or challenge traditional ideas about love, sex, sexual orientation, and what it means to be a girl or boy in American culture.
There are many other First-Year Seminars you can take this term! Search for “FSEM” in the course subject code.
