CFP - Essay Collection: Critical Perspectives on YA Literature, Culture, and
Blood

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.

modernist period, 1890-1945. Topics may include:
