While the "Twilight" and Harry Potter book series have both spawned successful movie franchises, they have also had profoundly great impacts on pre-teens and teenagers. The Emergent Adult international conference organized by the Cambridge/Homerton Research and Teaching Centre for Children's Literature, held in Cambridge, UK from September 3 to 5, 2010 will explore this phenomenon in depth.

From official release/information:

The effect on the teenage brain of books like "Twilight" and the Harry Potter series is to be examined at Cambridge University.

Scientists, authors, and education experts will all gather to discuss whether there are 'Twilight zones' in the teenage mind; areas of the brain in some way affected or altered by the reading of books like the wildly-popular vampire novels of Stephanie Meyer.
