Recently, there has been an increase in mistrust regarding the political establishment. Forms of expressing this disconformity have been at the centre of public and academic discussion. Countercultures, as attempts to find an alternative to social conformity, are central to these expressions of dissent. Books like Angela Nagle’s Kill All Normies: Online culture wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the alt-right (2017) highlight the resurgence of youth subcultures in the last decade. Correspondingly, counterculture movements on both sides of the political divide have seen their numbers multiplied.

Special Issue on “Data Journalism - Practice, Problems and Pedagogy” (Volume 28, Issue 1, June 2018)
Guest Editor: Kayt Davies Head of the Journalism Program, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia
Data journalism is blazing new trails through the media landscape, tackling big issues, illuminating social patterns and exposing connections, but doing it requires skills additional to the usual journalistic canon.
How are journalists finding ways to interrogate and present data stories? How are educators rising to the challenge of teaching data journalism skills? This special issue of Asia Pacific Media Educator aims to document the new ideas and approaches being embraced by journalists and educators.

The Don DeLillo Society plans to have two panels at the May 24-27, 2018 American Literature Association Conference in San Francisco, CA, on the topic of “Don DeLillo and Paradox.” Throughout his career, DeLillo’s work has balanced oppositions: novelists, and terrorists, life and death, the power of fiction and the power of history, prescience and timelessness, among many others. This year’s panel hopes to explore these paradoxes, but also why paradox, perhaps paradoxically, seems central to our understanding of DeLillo’s work. Please send your 250 word proposal and brief CV to Jesse Kavadlo at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 5, 2017.
