New approaches and designs for learning spaces on college campuses that are intended to encourage group work and active learning also provide great environments for undergraduate research. These innovative spaces can be found in libraries, residence halls, and student unions in addition to renovated classrooms and academic buildings.

The Association of Adaptation Studies 12th Annual Conference, De Montfort University, Leicester, 18-19 September, 2017
The Association of Adaptation Studies Annual Conference will return to its roots in the Centre for Adaptations, De Montfort University, Leicester, where it hosted the Association’s inaugural conference. The focus will be on ‘returns’ and, as Linda Hutcheon has argued, ‘return’ does not necessarily mean ‘regression’. Topics are invited on all aspects of adaptations and those with an emphasis on homecomings, returns, remakes and re-fashioning will be especially welcome.

Inciting Revolutionary Change
Micah White, one of Occupy Wall Street's founding members, suggests via his 2016 book The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution:
"Is protest broken? Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the rise of Donald Trump in the upcoming US presidential election. Movements ranging from Black Lives Matter to environmentalism are leaving activists frustrated. Meanwhile, recent years have witnessed the largest protests in human history. Yet these mass mobilizations no longer change society. Now activism is at a crossroads: innovation or irrelevance."
