I am putting together a panel for the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood conference that discusses the relationship between emerging adulthood and American popular culture. Since the last decade of scholarship on emerging adulthood has established the field of study, it has become important to comprehend the application of the discourse to popular culture texts which have a strong role in both capturing and problematizing notions of American adulthood, particularly as these texts have become more prominent in recent years.

In this session, papers will look at the different ways place can determine one's identity. Whether discussing immigrant narratives, narratives of displacement, coming of age narratives or something all-together different, geographic location determines a great deal about one's personal narrative. Place can determine as much about a person as his or genetic history, making the relationship between identity and place subject to boundless exploration- See more at: http://www.pamla.org/2013/topics/mapping-identity#sthash.dF5hJvN2.dpuf

Department of English Language and Literature, Istanbul University, Istanbul - Turkey

Madness is a concept of relativity, types and degrees alongside being a state and experience with its own realities. Even though primarily it refers to the field and science of psychiatry and psychology, it has leaked into everything human. Literature, embracing everything human and also being regarded as a field or activity not ordinary, normal or sane, has explored the states of "madness" for ages. Melancholia, hedonism, materialism, utopias, chemicals or arts- all breed insanity. Artists,scientists and women, among other groups, have been called mad. Some madwomen and madmen have been regarded as heroines and heroes and some heroes and heroines have been tortured as madmen and madwomen.
