Telling the Whole Story:
Communication in the Classroom and Community

Join us as we examine our own efforts to tell “the whole story” in today’s
classrooms and communities, facing challenges ranging from course curricula
to information literacy to our attempts to understand competing narratives
about global issues such as climate change, national security, and
international conflict.

Keynote speaker Helen Glover will share her experiences as a Navy
instructor, a contestant on reality television show “Survivor,” and a talk

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

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.
