UPDATE: Everyday Ethos: Conference on College Composition and Communication, March 13-16, 2012

The theme for the CCCC 2013 conference is "The Public Work of Composition," with particular attention to basic writers. An interest in writing as a public work naturally invites consideration of the moral questions inherent in writing for a public audience. (e.g., What is my relationship to my readers? By what means should I persuade? And so on.) The rhetorical concept of ethos should be a natural part of this discussion, given that a rich understanding of ethos leads writers to reflect on the manifestation of their identity in public discourse and the related ethical questions that such presentation entails—among them the age-old question of whether an author must be a "good man," vir bonus, and by what means that goodness may be measured.

A New Look at the Gothic Monster

This panel explores the cultural roles that monsters inhabit in Gothic fiction. Since the late-Victorian period, popular fiction has featured a panoply of monsters—vampires, werewolves, ghosts, zombies, mummies, shape-shifters, unknowable, and amorphous "things," and a variety of other undeads. The evolution of monsters, what they represent, and why audiences need them are subjects of interest for this panel. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following areas: psychology and the monster; the abhuman; the post-human and the monster; the monster in imperial Gothic fiction; popular fiction and the monster; cultural transformations of the monster.
