  • Children's Literature at the Turn of the Century: Political Economy of the Publishing Industry

    Joel Taxel

    Abstract: This essay outlines the beginnings of a political economy of the children's literature publishing industry. Central to the analysis is a consideration of the continuing commodification of children's literature, the increase in the licensing and merchandizing of characters from children's books and popular films, and the proliferation of series books that have assumed the status of brand names comparable to other commercial commodities.

  • Locating Latanya: The Situated Production of Identity Artifacts in Classroom Interaction

    Kevin M. Leander

    Abstract: While social constructivist interpretations have advanced a relational, multiple, and fluid conception of identity, one difficult problem involves understanding how identities are stabilized during the course of interaction. This article argues that interactants define and stabilize identity by producing identity artifacts with multimodal means, by constructing configurations of those artifacts, and by using those artifacts to project social space.

    Keywords: Secondary, Diversity, Research
