CFP: [Rhetoric-Composition] Essays on Digital Media for Upcoming Collection

Thursday, August 30, 2007 - 2:48pm
Heather Urbanski

For the upcoming essay collection "Writing (and) the Digital Generation"
(under contract with McFarland), I am soliciting contributions that analyze
the many facets of participatory digital entertainment. The key assumption
of this project is that, contrary to the claim that “no one reads anymore,”
a vast “Digital Generation” actually engages in more rhetorical activity
than perhaps any before. This collection seeks essays that describe and
document these participatory activities and how they are changing how we
see writing, perhaps permanently.
