ENE 5010: Law and Justice in Adol Literature (3 cr.)
An introduction to the concepts and themes related to law, the justice system, violence, conflict and resolution, freedom and censorship, children's rights, copyright and plagiarism issues, etc. through the use of literature with adolescents as primary characters and depicts conditions and experiences familiar to them. The course highlights and analyzes recent publications as well as significant, earlier texts. Students will gain knowledge of both middle school- and high school-appropriate literature that reflects these themes and will learn to wield not only literary theory but also knowledge of the law in a concrete, useful fashion for adolescents from middle through high school age. Students will also learn to think about the ways in which adolescent literature may reflect significant aspects of human culture, history, human rights, legal issues and concepts of justice.
