The editors of the collection of essays tentatively titled Keeping The Faith: Successful Strategies to Help Underrepresented Faculty Achieve Tenure and Promotion, invite faculty members from the aforementioned groups (i.e., people of color, GLBT, international, disabled, Christians and Non-Christians, etc.) to submit essays related to their experiences in earning tenure/and or promotion to associate or full professor. While stories of challenges and barriers are welcome, this is primarily an anthology for educators to share lessons and resources, rather than simply outline grievances with the tenure or promotion process.

Mobile Media Narratives
This collection investigates the relationship between mobile technologies and narrative forms. Extending Michele de Certeau's notion that "Every story is a travel story — a spatial practice," the chapters in this collection each develop ways that storytelling, oral histories, literary texts, and game stories have converged with mobile devices to reengage and interrogate the site-specificity of narrative.

Leo Tolstoy opens his masterpiece Anna Karenina with the sentence "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."
The family, a key structure to society, is a unit so basic that we hardly give it any thought. Yet its composite is always changing, and with it its depiction in the arts.
Leaving the biological factor of consanguinity aside, families are social institutions that aid in the socialization of children, and literally offer a home and solidarity to its members. Family life already differs by class as well as different religious or ethnic backgrounds.
