CFP: Critical Perspectives on YA Literature, Culture, and Blood (REVISED)

At the intersection of a number of YA texts is blood. Naturally or supernaturally, self-inflicted
or due to trauma, literally and metaphorically, teen blood is shed in a variety of ways and for a
variety of purposes in stories written for a teen audience. We are seeking articles for a proposed
collection that connect with their consideration of teen blood in YA literature and culture. We
are especially interested in critical examinations of contemporary YA texts and genres that have
yet to receive much critical attention.
