Reading Young Adult (YA) Literature in the EFL Classroom and Beyond is the aim of a Symposium being held on 20 May 2022 at the  WWU Münster. Abstracts should be sent before 15 November 2021.

Young Adult literature (YA) is a burgeoning genre in the book world, with committed publishers and dedicated imprints, its own place in bookstores and libraries as well as on #bookstagram, and with its own set of passionate readers and fans. YA literature is a focal point for discussions surrounding bibliodiversity and heterogeneity in and beyond the classroom. To acknowledge these trends in YA, and consider the opportunities for ELT through and with YA, we are merging our interests as researchers of English Language Education and Book Studies and coordinating this unique interdisciplinary symposium.

Confirmed keynote speakers are: Werner Delanoy, Klagenfurt, Austria; Melanie Ramdarshan Bold, Glasgow, UK; Alison Waller, Roehampton, UK.
