Keynote speakers:
Professor GILL PLAIN University of St Andrews
Dr JOHN CURRAN
SOPHIE HANNAH Author of The Monogram Murders

Author of over eighty mystery novels, Agatha Christie was the best-selling writer of the twentieth century. Her detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple are iconic and her play The Mousetrap is the longest-running in history.

Since her death in 1976, Christie's popularity has only increased, and her legacy has been interpreted in various, sometimes surprising new ways. In addition, new perspectives on the Queen of Crime's life and work have opened up. As her grandson, Mathew Prichard, said in 2014, 'Agatha Christie is so much more than an author.'

[UPDATE] crosspol: a journal of transitions - PAPERS DUE JANUARY 12, 2015

crosspol: a journal of transitions for high school + college writing teachers
contact email: 

In the context of high school-college transition, how is the relationship between standardized testing and writing
affecting students' lives, voices, and learning?

For our first themed issue, coming out early Spring 2015, we wanted to build on an important conversation that took place in March 2014 on the Council of Writing Program Administrators' listserv. The discussion on writing assessment prompted Rich Haswell to comment that testing has neglected the "uses and consequences of test scores (and I would add test preparation and test taking) as they affect the test takers." In other words, student ideas, experiences, and questions have been left out of conversations about writing assessment.

As one of the biggest and most successful film franchises of all time, Marvel's approach to developing an interconnected film universe has seemingly revolutionized the way superhero films are being made. Creating a shared universe with elements that crossover and interconnect individual films (culminating in perhaps the ultimate "team-up" film, The Avengers), this approach to filmmaking changed the way characters and storylines are developed. Marvel's foresight has resulted in a long-term plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which at this point consists of three distinct phases, each of which is to conclude with an Avengers film.
