Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

This session will examine the emergence of invention/experiment with basic materials of expression, such as the word or image, in literature, other arts, and culture. In what ways does novel expression produce meaning, or reflect aesthetic or social change, or belong to broader changes of form or the development of new media? How does it involve cultural or other difference? What novelty is deliberately produced, what inadvertently or passively?

The Mise-en-scène editorial team is pleased to announce an open call for papers for the journal’s premiere issue. Debuting in the fall of 2016, Issue 1:1 will be a multimodal showcase for mise-en-scène scholarship that encompasses the latest research and theoretical concerns in film and media studies. Given the journal’s mandate to renew discourse around one of screen culture’s most ubiquitous yet indefinable terms, the submissions for this and all subsequent calls are to be mise-en-scène centric. Analysis of the image, frame or screen capture must play an essential role in each manuscript.

**DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL JUNE 22, 2016**

In keeping with this year’s conference theme (Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is it?), this Scottish Studies special session panel welcomes papers that address topics related to utopianism/dystopianism in Scottish language, media, and literature studies, though the concepts “utopian” and “dystopian” may be subject to broad interpretation, and other topics in Scottish studies not necessarily on the theme will be considered.

SAMLA 88 will be held November 4-6 at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. View the conference link at: https://samla.memberclicks.net/conference
