Ideologies of Identity in Adolescent Fiction: The Dialogic Construction of Subjectivity

Synopsis

Looks mostly at adolescent novels but also some for children that represent subjectivity as being dialogically constructed through interrelationships with others, through language, and/or in a relation to social and cultural forces and ideologies. Novels are also selected that use overtly dialogical narrative strategies to structure the narrative and to represent subjectivity and intersubjectivity.
