Investigating Identities in Young Adult (YA) Narratives

Symposium on the 13/12/2017 at The University of Northampton UK

From JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight, Young Adult (YA) narratives have grown exponentially over the past twenty years. Adopting a range of genres and platforms including the Bildungsroman and the coming of age teen drama, YA narratives represent a significant cultural means to explore the formation of identity in all its varied aspects. This one day symposium at the University of Northampton will investigate the representation of identity constructions in relation to narrative form in YA narratives both past and present.

James Baldwin once said, “The paradox of education is precisely this - that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.” Baldwin’s words here are significant. Education shapes an individual’s critical questions about the world in which he or she lives and his or her connection to the world at large. This call for papers is for a Skype guest lecturer opportunity aimed at raising the consciousness of students in a Black History course at a HBCU.

The ultimate goal is to create a classroom that merges a variety of teaching styles so that a diverse range of student learning styles are accommodated.

This CFP begins from the assumption that modernity and modernization have had deeply contested legacies in the Global South.  While postcolonial frames have elaborated several rich possibilities to engage with these legacies, we are interested in papers that interrogate and/or extend postcolonial frameworks for thinking about modernization and modernity from the perspective of environmental and ecological questions.

 

Papers can include but are not limited to some of the following themes.
