Edited Collection on Sexuality and Sexual Identities in Literature for Young People
Acknowledging the capacity of literature to reflect and shape significant aspects of human development, this collection of essays takes as its central theme the representation of sexuality and sexual identities in texts for young people. Previous scholarship has established important connections between sexuality and gender, as well as sexuality and queerness, in literature for children and young adults. Investigations have also been made into the way particular genres and individual texts deal with desire, sex and sexuality.
Please submit abstracts of up to 300 words and a biographical note of up to 150 words to Dr Kristine Moruzi (email@example.com) and Dr Paul Venzo (firstname.lastname@example.org) by December 1, 2018. Full papers of 6000 words will be due by May 1, 2019.
