If I asked you to picture a classroom what would you imagine? How is it organized? Depending on your own educational experience this environment may vary. In the case of a 'traditional' classroom, it seems the organization has not changed. The layout of the classroom should adapt to the topic at hand. This could enhance the students ability to absorb the information being taught.
We invite paper, session, and workshop proposals for the inaugural Shakespearean Theatre Conference, to be held June 18-20, 2015, in Stratford, Ontario. All approaches to language in Tudor-Stuart drama are welcome, including those based in the traditional arts of language (grammar, rhetoric, and logic), those based in contemporary theories of language and communication (e.g. public sphere theory, speech pragmatics, speech act theory), and those based in performance (verse speaking, original practices, etc.).

DENVER COMIC CON
DENVER, CO May 22-25, 2015
The standard length of a comic book is 22 pages. What comes next? Page 23. Through Page 23's LitCon (formerly ROMOCOCO), comics scholars establish comic books and graphic novels as important, canonical texts that echo far beyond their final panels. Teaching comics, creating academic analyses, publishing the work of fellow comics scholars - this isn't a revolution; it's just what's next.
