DANGEROUS YOUTH~ This course will involve an investigation of the historic importance and contemporary significance of literature for and about teens, especially texts like Huckleberry Finn which fundamentally put teen characters at the forefront of social change. We will explore literary tropes associated with adolescent rebellion in order to make connections about the cultural popularity and emergence of a "youth media culture." Students do not need to have prior experience with Young Adult literature, though they should expect that some of the texts in this course will be inflammatory. “All students will be expected to participate in one or more formal oral presentation and write three formal essays as well as a multi-sourced, 8-10 page research paper.”
