From the earliest traces of etchings on stone tablets to the emergence of Kindles and e-readers in contemporary society, humans have invented platforms for the creation and dissemination of text. Implicit in each textual object are the figures of the reader and writer and their differing engagement with the work. But what does it mean to be a reader or a writer, and how does each role play a part in the shaping of a text?

Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

This session will examine the emergence of invention/experiment with basic materials of expression, such as the word or image, in literature, other arts, and culture. In what ways does novel expression produce meaning, or reflect aesthetic or social change, or belong to broader changes of form or the development of new media? How does it involve cultural or other difference? What novelty is deliberately produced, what inadvertently or passively?

The Mise-en-scène editorial team is pleased to announce an open call for papers for the journal’s premiere issue. Debuting in the fall of 2016, Issue 1:1 will be a multimodal showcase for mise-en-scène scholarship that encompasses the latest research and theoretical concerns in film and media studies. Given the journal’s mandate to renew discourse around one of screen culture’s most ubiquitous yet indefinable terms, the submissions for this and all subsequent calls are to be mise-en-scène centric. Analysis of the image, frame or screen capture must play an essential role in each manuscript.

This panel focuses on the use of American Indian Literary Nationalism as a framework for reading texts by Native authors. We will examine the ways in which AILN has been employed and has created new spaces for interpretations of Native literature.  Since the 2006 publication of the groundbreaking American Indian Literary Nationalism, scholars in the field of Native American Literature are re-evaluating the ways in which texts by Native authors are read. As well, subsequent works analyzing Native literatures using the methods of AILN have been instrumental in creating new spaces for interpretation. This panel focuses on the influence of AILN and its contributions specifically to the field of Native American Literature.
