Providing a counterpoint to readings of modern American culture that focus on the cult of youth, Edith Wharton and the Modern Privileges of Age interrogates early twentieth-century literature’s obsessions with aging past early youth. Exploring the ways in which the aging process was understood as generating unequal privileges and as inciting intergenerational contests, this study situates constructions of age at the center of modern narrative conflicts.

Dawson examines how representations of aging connect the work of Edith Wharton to writings by a number of modern authors, including Willa Cather, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Zora Neale Hurston, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Floyd Dell, Eugene O’Neill, and Gertrude Atherton. For these writers, age-based ideologies filter through narratives of mourning for youth lost in the Great War, the trauma connected to personal change, the

Statistics

NOTICE: Change to ASAPS’ Annual Statistics Survey Methodology

ASAPS opted to change its survey methodology in 2018, which is why there are apparent differences between prior reports and ASAPS’ latest report for the 2017 calendar year. The statistics now only include board-certified plastic surgeons, whereas prior surveys also included dermatologists and otolaryngologists. The Board opted to remove the other specialties in order to:

  • Best represent the specialty of plastic surgery to media, industry and board-certified plastic surgeons.
  • Put forth our specialty’s actual numbers in terms of procedures performed, etc.  (It was suspected that including dermatologists and otolaryngologists deflated the surgical numbers and inflated the nonsurgical numbers). Both proved true and certain surgical procedures believed to have been on the decline or leveling out, are on the rise, (e.g. facelifts which increased by 22% last year).
  • Differentiate us from other organizations conducting similar, if not nearly identical surveys.

Netflix’s The Society: Season 1 Review

It’s hard to pinpoint which Netflix Originals are going to catch fire and become a one or two week buzz with the streaming crowd, but if you’re a fan of The CW’s The 100 or William Golding’s Lord of the Flies – or even if you just wished CBS’ Under the Dome was good – then The Society is the new “teenagers forced to make really dark and difficult choices” show for you.Produced by Amazing Spider-Man’s Marc Webb and created by Party of Five’s Christopher Keyser, The Society is part Lost, part Kid Nation, and all disturbing. Admittedly, it has a clunky couple of intro episodes, and from time to time the stale small-town setting can create a feeling of monotony and bloat, but inside it all is a sinister look at what human beings will do when forced to create their own community from scratch.

The premise, which seems

Renowned Explorers: International Society on Steam

Reviews

“It’s genuinely great, like, it’s one of my favorite games this year so far. It’s got so much going for it, so much depth, so much character, so much replayability, great systems, unique concepts in combat, awesome presentation…”
TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit

“Here’s where I start to love Renowned Explorers. The encounters aren’t just a paper/rock/scissors system of aggressive, friendly, or devious. The more pertinent choice is whether you’re going to talk or fight. Either approach has distinct rules, with some characters suited to one or the other.”
100 – Quartertothree – Tom Chick

“…Renowned Explorers still stands as one of the best surprises of the year so far that wannabe adventurers of any age can enjoy. Encountering some thugs but instead of fighting, it just turns into one great big insult throwing contest where the loser runs away, foaming at the mouth. Brilliant.”
85 – Gamewatcher – John
