This panel seeks papers to discuss counternarratives, their limits and possibilities, and their relationship to histories of national belonging in contemporary U.S. ethnic fiction.

ThrewLine Books has launched a new print journal called The Ottawa Object that will publish high-quality and intriguing short fiction. It will specialize in strongly focused speculative fiction and compelling, eccentric literary fiction. If your name is George Saunders, you may want to submit something. If you're a replicant who writes about his birth from the neurons of a pale and driven scientist, you may want to submit something. If you exist only in the imagination of a boy laying in the grass and looking at the stars, you may want to submit something. Heck, even if you're just a really gifted writer, you may want to submit something.

Nine of the ten highest-grossing Hollywood movies of 2014 were based on creative properties from children's and youth culture, including comic books, novels, and toys. In line with this year's theme of In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts, I welcome papers that examine adaptation, compare media (broadly defined), and/or explore transmedia storytelling. While papers on recent adaptations are particularly encouraged, this panel seeks a variety of new, productive perspectives on adapting children's and youth culture for various media, including film, television, and online media.
