The University of Lapland (Finland) will publish a book entitled Lost and

countries. Some of the writers have asked for more time to complete their
essays. The deadline has therefore been extended to October 30th. We also
welcome new submissions.

Lore: An E-journal for Teachers of Writing seeks submissions for the
Digressions section of the Fall 2004 issue. In the past year or so,
blogging has become something of a national pastime with academics becoming
a core group using blogs for personal and professional reasons. Yet even
though many people embrace blogging, many others have no idea what it is or
why anyone would do it. In this issue of Lore, we want to explore the roll
that blogging plays for compositionists and the composition classroom.

NMEDIAC, The Journal of New Media & Culture, is soliciting traditional
research and or theory-based articles for the upcoming Winter 2004 issue.
The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2004.

NMEDIAC is a scholarly peer-reviewed online publication. It is an
intellectual canvas where the cultural spaces and experiences of new media
are theorized and rigorously explored within global and local
contingencies of the present and past. In particular, we encourage
submission of cross-disciplinary research of new media texts, users, and
technologies. Works that incorporate either or both humanities and social
science approaches to scholarship are welcome.
