Kansas English, v61 n2 Entire Issue Feb76
This issue of "Kansas English" contains four articles related to popular culture, censorship, and religion. "Popular Culture Studies: A Complement to the Humanities" by Michael Marsden, focuses on the relationship between popular culture studies and the humanities, including English. "Popular Couture: La Vie En Blue" by Richard Martin, examines the appeal of blue jeans (denim) in contemporary popular culture. "Censorship: What To Do About It? A Modest Proposal" by Rollin Douma argues that the use of a written book selection and complaint policy containing the American Library Association's and the National Council of Teachers of English's guidelines effectively inhibits censorship in schools. "Teaching About Religion Through the Language Arts" by Galen Boehme discusses the possibilities for teaching about religion in the public school, especially through language arts coruses. (TS)
