Student Defends Thesis on Canadian YA Literature

Congratulations to Master of Arts in Children’s Literature candidate Karen Taylor, who has successfully defended her thesis, “’Her Knowledge of Flora and Fauna Came Mostly from Fiction’: The Adolescent as Green Subject in Three Canadian Young Adult Novels.” Using the lens of ecocriticism, this thesis focuses on the literary portrayal of nature in three contemporary realistic Canadian young adult novels Mistik Lake by Martha Brooks, The Lightkeeper’s Daughter by Iain Lawrence, and The Uninvited by Tim Wynne-Jones. Her thesis supervisor was Judy Brown and Margot Filipenko served as thesis committee member.

Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open.
