Dan Schall, director of the Writing Center, blended photography and poetry to create a photo essay style-set of four poems titled “Philadelphiamble.” Published in Streetnotes, a peer-reviewed ethnography and poetry journal published out of the University of California (Davis), the pieces comprised about a third of Schall’s 2010 master's thesis from the English graduate program at Arcadia.

Schall also presented a paper at the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association (MAPACA) Conference in Atlantic City on Nov. 7, alongside co-author and Arcadia University graduate Stephen Mazzeo. “Trust Issues: Minimalist Fiction and Reader Worldsmithing” deals with minimalism as an aesthetic vehicle for the development of “transcendent pop literature,” which develops and is developed by the prevailing pop culture consciousness of the day.
