Tese de Doutoramento em Estudos Portugueses na especialidade de Literatura e Cultura Portuguesas apresentada à Universidade Aberta; Em Portugal, desde a década de 80 que uma literatura de potencial recepção juvenil tem vindo a marcar território a nível editorial, deparando-se os leitores com produções inseridas em várias tendências, desde os textos realistas aos textos fantásticos, passando pelas narrativas de aventura e mistério. A literatura juvenil constitui-se como um lugar de cruzamento de olhares do leitor com a Alteridade e outras culturas e formas de ver o Mundo, podendo ser um espaço de encontro fraternal com o Outro ou um privilegiado disseminador de estereótipos. As práticas discursivas, entre as quais integramos os textos literários, têm poderosos efeitos ideológicos, pelo modo como representam a realidade, sendo mecanismos que produzem e reproduzem as relações de poder. Neste contexto, os textos literários, enquanto formas de discurso, mas também os autores, enquanto agentes sociais, contribuem para a criação de imagens culturais e sociais do Outro e para a consolidação, em alguns casos, de preconceitos. Neste estudo, analisam-se as narrativas de recorte realista publicadas em Portugal entre1995 e 2010...

O trabalho aborda a leitura literária do adolescente e emprega um estudo de caso para verificar possíveis interesses em literatura do jovem contemporâneo. No referencial teórico discorre sobre os temas da leitura não-instrumental, literatura para jovens, adolescência, subjetividade e comportamento e necessidades informacionais do adolescente. Como métodos de coleta de dados utiliza um grupo focal, realizado com cinco jovens de uma escola pública de Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul; duas entrevistas com especialistas no assunto, bibliotecárias cujo exercício profissional envolve o público jovem; e pesquisa bibliográfica sobre os tópicos mais importantes levantados no grupo focal. Pondera sobre os fatores que podem influenciar os gostos em literatura, como o contexto social e a geração do leitor, ressaltando, no entanto, que não há padrões possíveis. Fala também sobre a atual literatura juvenil, leitura literária na web, leitura versus a internet e cinema e a censura a livros de ficção. Conclui que o adolescente necessita, primordialmente, se identificar com o que lê, visto que se encontra numa fase de construção e busca da própria identidade. Acorda que a leitura literária, quando provida de real interesse e assim capaz de produzir sentido para o leitor...

Although teenagers are taught to never judge a book by its cover, studies have shown that many teens do in fact make their reading decisions based on a book’s cover art (Jones, 2007; Yampbell, 2009). In this context, I considered it important to conduct a visual analysis of young adult book covers to determine trends in terms of imagery, colours and typography. To do so, I analyzed a selection of 50 books drawn from the list put out in 2014 by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) naming the Best Fiction for Young Adults, and I reached some interesting conclusions. In terms of imagery, the human body is the most predominant motif, in particular the fragmented body with the focus on the upper part of body, such as the face and the eyes. Including body pictures in a book cover is an effective marketing strategy since teenagers tend to create a personal relationship with protagonists. However, this practice can also objectify the human body and strengthen the idea that it can be manipulated (as it is, both by the designer and the reader). In terms of colours, it was hard to establish a trend since colour seems to be used at random in the book covers analyzed. However, it was possible to determine that black is by far the most used colour. Black can make a cover appear sleek and sophisticated and also makes the book appealing to both male and female readers because black is liked by both sexes. Lastly...

Tese de mestrado, Estudos Ingleses e Americanos (Estudos Norte-Americanos), Universidade de Lisboa, Faculdade de Letras, 2012; O contexto colonial de Porto Rico com respeito aos Estados Unidos enforma a relação que se estabelece entre eles. A atribuição de cidadania americana aos porto-riquenhos, aliada a factores económicos, fomentou o fenómeno diaspórico maciço do final dos anos quarenta e cinquenta do século XX e resultou na migração de quase metade da população de Porto Rico para a metrópole, com a consequente formação de grandes comunidades porto-riquenhas sobretudo em Nova Iorque e outras zonas urbanas dos Estados Unidos. Não obstante a separação jurídica entre porto-riquenhos e grupos imigrantes, as comunidades porto-riquenhas nos Estados Unidos vivem em situação de discriminação e desigualdade social e económica que transformam estas comunidades em enclaves linguísticos e culturais no seio das cidades americanas. O revivalismo cultural e social dos anos sessenta e setenta do século passado contribuiu para o desenvolvimento de uma corrente cultural e literária porto-riquenha nos Estados Unidos que discute a experiência diaspórica nos Estados Unidas tal como a vive e pensa. Verifica-se o surgimento de vozes femininas na literatura da diáspora porto-riquenha e...

Inspired by the epistemological approach of Gilles-Gaston Granger and the sociological approach of Howard Becker, this thesis focuses on Quebec’s téléroman as a mean of social knowledge. Based on the theoretical conception of entry into adult life elaborated by various researchers such as the French sociologist Olivier Galland, this research aims to assess the sociological value of the Quebec’s téléroman as a form of representation of this phenomenon. To achieve this goal, we describe the entry into adult life of four characters from the téléroman Yamaska : Geoffroy Carpentier, Olivier Brabant, Théo Carpentier and Ingrid Harrisson. By applying the theories proposed by the French sociologist Olivier Galland to these characters, our goal is to study and describe the adequacy, or inadequacy, of such a theory when applied to the experiences of young adults today broadcast in the chosen téléroman. Through the characters of Yamaska, the study aims to see how the theory fits, or not, to the television series, and investigates whether it provides additional knowledge about the phenomenon of entry into adult life. This will help us determine the type of knowledge broadcast through this TV fiction, and focus on the influence exerted on the content and the way it is broadcast by the téléroman’s structure.; S’inspirant des approches épistémologique de Gilles-Gaston Granger et sociologique d’Howard Becker...

peer-reviewed; Despite a lineage stretching back as far as the 1940s, it is only in recent years that Young Adult (YA) fiction has begun to shed its reputation as a niche category largely deemed unworthy of study. The current boom in popularity of YA fiction has instigated this change. One of the most significant strands of this boom is the proliferation of Young Adult dystopian novels, which began to appear in significant numbers in the early 21st century and which provide the focus for this study. Specifically, this thesis examines the issue of the body and its role in the exertion and resistance of disciplinary power in contemporary YA dystopias. The theoretical model, drawn from Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison (1975), bolsters the study of power and the body in five contemporary YA dystopian trilogies: Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy, Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series, Lauren Oliver’s Delirium trilogy, Veronica Roth’s Divergent series and Ally Condie’s Matched trilogy. A focus on texts featuring female protagonists accounts for the secondary focus on feminist theory. Combining these approaches, this thesis features close readings facilitated also by Young Adult literary criticism...

A rite of passage is an experience that triggers a significant transformation. During the journey an individual crosses a border or boundary and is transformed in a way that empowers him or her to live in the world differently than before. A genre in Aboriginal writing that often traces a main character’s journey from adolescence to adulthood is young adult fiction. Three prolific Aboriginal young adult fiction writers are John Muk Muk Burke, Melissa Lucashenko, and Tara June Winch.

This work was undertaken in the field of creative writing, specifically young adult science fiction, and uses the conventions of fiction to explore matter transmitters and the beauty myth. Matter transmitters are a trope of science fiction that is very old but unutilized (since the middle of the 20th century, thanks perhaps to Star Trek). Twinmaker revives the trope, demonstrating how any serious approach necessarily leads to interrogating contemporary notions of identity, embodiment, society and spatiality. Twinmaker was the author’s first young adult novel published in the United States, the first book in a series of three.

Holmwood is the novel which constitutes the major work submitted towards my PhD in Creative Writing. It is accompanied in a second volume by an exegesis of the generative and governing notions which I deem to bear on this work. The novel is a contemporary Australian fiction set in the city of Adelaide and focusing on a period of a month or so in the entwined lives of two sisters, Evie and Paula Haggerty, women in their forties. Holmwood grows out of my abiding preoccupation with the acculturation of women worldwide towards a muting and dilution of selfhood and identity, but it is a novel rather than a tract, attempting in particular a psychological verisimilitude and therefore situated largely within the minds of the central characters, who refract and provide a slant on the narrative. Evie and Paula are bound in family bonds and by shared responsibility for Paula' s children. The sisters work in early-child -care and aged-care respectively, their work scenarios providing a context and perspective for their mid-life entanglements with new partners and ongoing struggles with unresolved birth-family and young-adult relationship dilemmas. The close connections of both sisters with adolescents points up their residual attachment to a youth-culture neither has definitively left. I propose the Haggerty sisters as modest heroines of a difficult chapter in history...

'Snap Shot' is a Young Adult novel centred around two main characters – 16 year-old Bel and her older step-sister, Diane, who was living in New York on September 11, 2001. The novel begins with a bus crash on a city freeway, and the narrator, who we later learn is Bel, unfolds the story that leads up to the crash. There are many plotlines that run through the novel, narrated in a variety of voices by Bel. She tells the story of her step-sister, who witnessed the September 11 attack from a distance (in Queens). She reveals her sister's story in the weeks following the attack. Diane is inspired by the image of one of the victims of the attack, a woman named Sena. She sees her photo in one of the desperate fliers that popped up around the city after the attack, and recognises a bracelet the woman is wearing as similar to one owned by her mother. Diane acts on an impulsive idea to somehow bring redemption to the family of this woman by creating a false photograph of the bracelet at Ground Zero, but she is detained by the National Guard. This is an incident that leads to her mother's decision to return to Australia to live. Back in Australia, Diane makes contact with her father, who is distant and dishonest with her. Diane asks to see her younger step-sister...

The novel “Calypso Summers” explores issues associated with being an Aboriginal youth including complexities surrounding identity formation and the role and impact of engagement with Aboriginal culture on the well-being of contemporary Aboriginal youth. The story follows twenty-year-old “Calypso Summers” who adopts Rastafarianism to gain social status in the absence of employment and strong cultural links. Finding work in a health food store provides impetus for Calypso to discover traditional Aboriginal medicinal uses of native plants. Calypso's quest brings him into contact with his family and cultural principles of the Nukunu people, assisting him to develop meaning in his life. The novel can be read as affirmation of the strength and importance of Aboriginal cultures and promotion of engagement with culture as way to negotiate circumstances often deemed insurmountable. The exegetical essay “The process and importance of writing Aboriginal fiction for young adult readers” is divided into three parts. Part A examines the impact of Indigenous protocols upon the process of writing that includes Aboriginal people, issues and culture. Part B explores the social realities of Aboriginal Australia and the role young adult fiction can play in addressing Indigenous illiteracy and disadvantage. Part C discusses the benefit of mentorship with renowned Jamaican writer Olive Senior when constructing the fictional work “Calypso Summers”.; Thesis (Ph.D.) -- University of Adelaide...

The creative work ‘The Nightwatchers’ is a novel with gothic undertones, written for a young adult audience. Twelve-year-old Mattie Russo and her best friend Harry are the ‘nightwatchers’, who entertain themselves by watching the comings and goings of the residents of their apartment block. When five-year-old Sammy goes missing, they play detective, discovering his corpse by the local river. Mattie and Harry realise the murderer is someone from the apartments who’s been watching where the local children play; this puts them in danger. Mattie cannot turn to her illiterate Italian grandmother (Nonna), or her depressed father for help; nor can Harry turn to his drunken, violent parents. When another boy disappears, Mattie and Harry return to the river in search of him, terrified that their silence has cost the boy his life. The plot of the novel is a device to engage the young adult reader; the novel is most importantly a ‘multicultural’ work, drawing attention to the need for cross-cultural communication in Australia. The relationship between Mattie and her Italian migrant grandmother is crucial to the novel. Their struggles to communicate (Nonna’s broken English and Mattie’s inability to speak Italian) mean they must each ‘culturally negotiate’ two cultures. Although the contemporary relevance of the concept of multiculturalism has been contested...

Exploring Urban Spaces in the Young Imagination makes the case for taking seriously children's and young adult fiction as a topic worthy of scholarly analysis beyond a purely didactic focus. The recent explosion of interest in this literature among adult readers and the blurring of boundaries between adult and youth media demonstrate that it has become a powerful influence on popular culture and has captured the collective imagination. As the future inhabitants of urban spaces, paying close attention to children’s and youth perspectives can provide fresh lenses, with which to view the cultural construction of cityscapes. This dissertation examines post-millennium children’s and YA fiction and film. Drawing on theories of the spatial turn, my research provides five case studies on a variety of topics related to the contemporary metropolis – ranging from cognitive disability to environmental concerns. Specifically, it pays close attention to the inherent connections between the developing perceptions of metropolises and the various protagonists’ processes of identity formation. Beginning with Berlin, as portrayed in Andreas Steinhöfel’s popular Rico-und-Oskar-trilogy, my analysis explores the protagonist’s shifting perceptions of his urban surroundings while overcoming the limitations of his learning disability. Furthermore...

ABSTRACT Since 1994, a growing number of South African writers of young adult and crossover fiction have experimented with science fiction and fantasy as tools for anticipating potential futures. In this article, three of these works are considered: The Slayer of Shadows by Elana Bregin, Zoo City by Lauren Beukes and The Mall Rats series consisting of Deadlands and Death of a Saint by Lily Herne. The texts are initially briefly contrasted with two texts by authors based in the USA: Lauren St John's The White Giraffe and Sarah Pinsker's "The Trans-dimensional Horsemaster Rabbis of Mpumalanga Province" to show that the three local writers' engagement with the South African present enables them to resist, in varying degrees, prevalent Western tendencies to see positive African futures in terms of either an idealised pre-colonial past or as the result of redemptive agency by external forces. Although almost twenty years separate the Bregin novel from the others, there are clear similarities between them: each is written by a white woman (or women) and each places a young female protagonist within a crumbling, violent and resolutely urban environment. Paradoxically, the future worlds the authors create are at once both profoundly unfamiliar and recognisably South African...
