(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture
A continuation of ENGL 2298, this advanced course surveys the development of children's literature from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day. Focusing on classic and contemporary texts that ask readers to think about who they are and what kind of world they inhabit, this course explores the literary, social and educational values that inform works written for children and adolescents. Written assignments will provide students with opportunities to develop their critical and theoretical understanding of the field.
