Avoiding the reductive tendency of some recent scholarship to focus on the purported shortcomings of the ‘Twilight’ series with respect to literary merit and political correctness, this volume adopts a cultural studies framework to explore the range of scholarly concerns awakened by the ‘Twilight’ novels and their filmic adaptations. In so doing, the contributors show the series’s importance for studies of popular culture, gender, reception history and young adult literature.
