Spring 2011 Editor’s Note

Spring is a time for transformation, new beginnings – and at gnovis – we honor this timely tradition of the season by the passing of the torch to a new leadership team and to present a fresh batch of scholarly articles. This season isn’t any different. After receiving a record number of submissions for our Spring 2011 issue, we are proud of the 12 articles included in our most competitive issue to date.

The articles of this issue touch on a number of subjects: from the construction of celebrity ailing bodies in terms of disease to memorializing bodies on Facebook. Exploring frameworks of interpretations among new and old medias to how technology can improve development and broaden the education experience, and more.
