Ellen Handler Spitz was guest editor for the Summer, 2009 issue of the Journal of Aesthetic Education (JAE), "... a highly respected interdisciplinary journal that focuses on clarifying the issues of aesthetic education understood in its most extensive meaning." The issue's topic is children's literature; one of Ellen's abiding interests is the cultural life of young people. This special issue is being submitted by the University of Illinois Press for a Council of the Editors of Learned Journals prize.

On Monday, June 1, Handler Spitz will speak on a panel, The Metamorphoses of Sigmund: Freud and His Afterlives, before the evening performance of Hysteria, a play by British playwright Terry Johnson. The panel, and the play, will be at the Wilma Theater in Philadelphia.
