Title: A Critique of the Cultural Authenticity of Arabic Young Adult Literature
Authors: Nisreen M. Anati
Issue Date: 2-Jan-2013
Abstract: This paper is the first in its kind as it declares the emergence of Arabic Young Adult Literature (in English) as an independent genre - literature texts written about Arab children ages 12-20. More importantly, this study establishes, for the first time, a teacher-friendly criterion of the key characteristics of “culturally authentic” Arabic young adult texts. Additionally, the study highlights the value of integrating Arabic Young Adult Literature (AYAL) texts (in English) into the English language arts curriculum in Arabic and non-Arabic speaking countries.
