How did war terminologies and war mentalities manifest themselves in important texts from the postwar period? Did war narrative change significantly after WWII, in the period 1945 to 1975? Did it go underground, such that we could no longer tell stories about battles, foxholes, and beloved leaders in the way we did in the mid-century? Did Heller's Catch-22 and Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five rewrite the rules in significant ways? We welcome all papers treating representations of war in influential American texts, 1945-1975.

How did important texts from the postwar period frame the suburbs as a locus of refuge, anger, hysteria, or (even) self-realization at a moment when American cities themselves experienced a shifting and growing economy, African American rights protests, atomic fears, etc.? How did the suburban aesthetic, the collision of romantic and realist, and spatial concepts including place, space, geography, zones, neighborhoods, distance, and scale feature in suburban narrative? We welcome all papers treating the suburban experience, as this approached or averted the apocalyptic, in American texts, 1945-1975.

Rhetorical Machines: Past, Present, and Future Conversations in Rhetoric and Computation

John Jones (West Virginia University) & Lavinia Hirsu (University of Glasgow)

The growing interest in digital humanities (Ridolfo and Hart-Davidson, Burdick et al., Berry, Gold), software studies (Manovich, Fuller), and the emerging communication and computational challenges presented by technocultural shifts like the Internet of Things (Pew Research Center) have underscored the need for scholars in rhetoric and computation to join their efforts to better explore how our digital machines interact with both users and each other. Indeed, although they have long been driven by common communication goals, the histories of rhetoric and computation have only rarely intersected.
