Most often, borders are thought of as spaces of division that, according to Gloria Anzaldúa, “distinguish us from them.” However, borders also create their own spaces, as “two worlds merging to form a third country — a border culture [where] duality is transcended.” The presence of multiple languages and dialects in border contexts and the language experiences of linguistically diverse writers provides teachers and students with opportunities and challenges as they engage writing in personal, social, educational, professional, and community situations where audience, purpose, and language vary.

Academic literary critics have long eyed book reviewers, their public counterparts, with suspicion. For example, in The Armed Vision, a 1948 study of the methods of modern literary criticism, Stanley Edgar Hyman makes the following heavily weighted distinction, "the reviewer, more or less, is interested in books as commodities; the critic in books as literature." However, the past 15 years have seen a proliferation of forms and forums for online writing about books that combine the literary and the commodity in complex and interesting ways, deconstructing and reevaluating the distinctions between these terms.

Enchanted, Stereotyped, Civilized: Garden Narratives in Literature, Art and Film
(essay collection)
Gardens have been a crucial part in mythology and literature. Throughout English
literature for example, the idea of a garden is a recurrent image; these images largely
stem from the story of the Garden of Eden which is found in the Genesis, the first book of
the Bible. Gardens reveal the relationship between culture and nature – the garden can
be seen as civilized and ‘shaped’ and therefore domesticated nature –, in the vast library
of garden literature few books focus on what the garden means – on the ecology of
garden as idea, place, and action. Our volume will discuss the topic of the garden in

In the ancient Greek education  there was a focus on art education such as musical education and drama education. This primary art education is the rudiment of aesthetic education. It aims at leading students to be self-regulated and be able to get rid of all faults. Plato believes that students would get the habit to love the beautiful thing and integrate it with their mind unknowingly and prevent  the influence from the evil, the debauchery, the contemptibility, and the obscenity. Plato thinks that the best education is music education, for music is to look for the beauty and the good in heart and the person with good music education is smart to find out which the ugly is and which the beautiful is.

Taking Flight: assembling, becoming, queering Deleuze Studies Conference and Camp

Taking Flight speaks to Deleuze and Guattari’s petition to leave bounded territories and to connect and to create and to “establish a logic of the AND.” Privileging intense and transformative encounters with others, they ask us not to cling to the state apparatus that reinforces the normative or the binary machines which rigidify us (man-woman, adult-child, straight-queer etc.), but to invent more supple and fluid connections, which, in turn, create new concepts, new thought, and new experiences. This invitation for anomalous creations and diversifications across and beyond disciplines ruptures genealogies, totalities, and unifications.
