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.

CFP: [20th] Collection on comics and graphic novels

Monday, January 7, 2008 - 10:16am
Dan Hassler-Forest

Over the course of the past two years, there has been a marked increase of academic interest in
comic books and graphic novels, from a cultural theory perspective as well as from the fields of
media studies and literature. However, there have been surprisingly few book-length studies on
this topic published from any of these disciplinary perspectives. Hence, while Scott McCloud’s
groundbreaking book Understanding Comics raised public and academic interest in this under-
theorized and challenging medium, and helped to theorize the medium-specific qualities of
sequential pictorial narratives, his book suspends the question of how specific disciplinary
perspectives might be engaged.
