Text in Context: A Graduate Student Journal
Text in Context is a graduate student journal published electronically by Southern Connecticut State University. We seek submissions exploring the text itself and its function(s) and implications both internally and externally—literary analysis, poetry studies, critical theory, popular reception of a particular work, close readings, historical relevance, etc. Though the journal primarily deals with English studies, we welcome original papers from other disciplines, provided those papers focus on the text and/or its context—pedagogy and instructional design, localization of language in the brain, regional dialects and their origins, etc.
To some extent education shapes personalities and aesthetic values. In arts education it is common to observe a mismatch between what is taught and contemporary production. A good example of this is generally found in music education, and in particular the teaching of the musical instrument. Many techniques, methods and repertoire which are used today for teaching an instrument are the same that were used over one hundred years ago.
A Rhetorical Criticism paper of the children's movie: Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted. Using Ideological Criticism with a focus on Semiotics and Deconstructionism, we learn about the hidden content that would be considered adult-oriented in American society.
This panel welcomes papers that examine superhero narratives (in comics, film, and other media) working "against the grain." Superheroes are, by definition, guardians of law and order, i.e. of the status quo. Not coincidentally, the vast majority of costumed crime-fighters—and certainly the most famous ones—are male, heterosexual, and white. Yet there are superheroes that do not conform to that tacit rule and serve, in this sense, as examples of what we can call alternative superheroism. Those are the ones this panel will examine.

We live in a world of people who seemingly cannot stop talking, and often this situation presents a competition of who is able to attract the most attention. This session will explore the premise of Susan Cain's book, Quiet. People who prefer reading to partying or listening to speaking are considered introverts. They are innovative and make significant contributions, but dislike self
-promotion. They are often labeled "quiet" and sometimes this description alludes to negative connotations. Perhaps their being
quiet is a personality characteristic or a product of their environment; perhaps their reserved nature is due to the hesitation of self-expression. However, from Van Gogh's

From Beverley Hills 90210 to Gossip Girl and Glee, the genre of the teen drama series has added a unique and multi-faceted dynamic to the American television landscape. The popularity of this genre stems from the way in which it challenges and dramatizes the realities of its young viewers, presenting them with a fantastical reality which is defined by melodrama, materialism and excess. This quality of the genre often causes adult viewers to dismiss the teen drama series as a product of guilty pleasure television.
