This year, we continue to explore various matters of the urban, but in particular, education and this city. Sunday schools, regular schools, symposiums, workshops, libraries, newsletters, e-learning, expositions, exhibitions, street festivals, travel, field trips, block associations, reading groups, elders, blogs, youtube, revolutionary buildings, performance, music education -- what are the various forums that we build, sustain, and perpetuate in our cities, in order to know more about the city? Of particular interest will be issues of place, sustainability, class, race, and gender, as they play with or against access to the various forms of education in the city.

'Fading and Emerging: Tracing the Mainstream in Literature and Popular Culture', the second annual Marginalised Mainstream conference, seeks to explore the issue of fading and emerging in culturally significant popular forms that have been subject to critical marginalisation.

Is there a Future for the Standard Edition?
Session 14120, NeMLA 2014 Convention, Harrisburg PA, April 3-6, 2014
Calling all editors of scholarly 'Works' editions, and anyone interested in the value and possibilities of such projects under the regime of digitalization and amid shrinking university press budgets. Is the author-based, multi-volume, hard-copy standard edition (becoming) a thing of the past? If so, what(if anything) has been lost? What possibilities exist for perpetuating functions we value on new platforms? What models exist for hybrid paper/digital editions? Are we adequately training tomorrow's editors?

Pirandello's influence can be detected in the evolution of modern drama as shown in the works of Sartre, Ionesco, Beckett, Borges and O'Neill. This session wants to explore Pirandello's revolutionary philosophy which has inspired and modeled modern drama all over the world: theatre within theatre, the relativity of truth, the contrast between art and life and the ambiguous relationship between reality and belief.
