Ken Russell was a renaissance man whose career encompassed not only film and television but also ballet, dance, the music video, photography, opera and the written word. His pioneering early work for the BBC's Monitor and Omnibus, from the 1950s through to the 1970s, redefined the art of the arts documentary and biographical format and he was among the first to negotiate the relationship between film and television.

The annual Minnesota Writing and English Conference(MNWE) will be held at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota on March 31, 2017-April 1, 2017. The theme of the conference is "Connecting Landscapes." Our age of globalization and virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE's theme, Connecting Landcapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting geographical and metaphorical landscapes. As English educators, we speak of discovering "where we stand" on issues, of being "moved" by words and images, and of using languagae to change others' positions and points of view and create movement.
2017 is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. Austen has become one of the most discussed and beloved literary figures; indeed, her status as one of our most beloved literary figures has often influenced the ways in which her life and works are discussed within critical circles. Eve Sedgwick famously announced that Austen criticism is "notable not just for its timidity and banality but for its unresting exaction of the spectacle of a Girl Being Taught a Lesson." This special issue of Rhizomes invites critical articles and creative works that dismiss both this legacy of timidity and the tendency to exact pedagogical spectacles through scholarship.

Though scientifically dense and tethered to biology, ecology—particularly in its multiple, ecologies—is an area rich for discussion and interpretation. At its root, the word “ecology” comes from the Greek word oîkos, meaning “house.” At its most basic translation, “ecology” becomes “study of the house,” and is open for the complex questions about this space of living and interaction.
