Foreign languages and area studies live in a new world of cultural and ethnic studies, comparative literature, multiculturalism, and global studies. Established disciplines are morphing into interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary innovations. Popular genres and media -- like film, detective fiction, children's literature, and graphic novels -- are now part of the cultural canon. How do we integrate these new media into our collections? The panel will expound on these new developments and their place in our libraries.
