In the drop-down Commentary menu (above), a new category, Position Papers, has joined Perspectives in Criticism (the ATCA series that began in 1992) and Criticism in Controversy (newsy battles that start on the Home page before accumulating there).

The newest Position Paper transcribes the Perspectives in Criticism panel of Adam Rapp, Richard Nelson, Emily Mann and Tim Sanford at the NY meeting (Feb., 2011). We are indebted to Sherry Eaker for cordinating the panel and introducing the transcript. NOTE that it includes suggestions for training young critics that ATCA will consider going forward.
