We are seeking paper and panel proposals on a wide range of blog-related
topics, including blogging and pedagogy; blogging and political
campaigns; blogging and the news media; and personal blogs. A paper may
analyze an existing blog or assess the value or usefulness of blogs for
particular purposes. We are especially interested in the relationship
and conflict between blog culture and the mainstream news media, and the
ways in which the media have represented blogging.

For Paper Proposals:

Please submit a brief abstract embedded in the body of an email.
Include contact information (your postal and preferred email address,
phone and fax numbers, etc.) and a biographical note about your
connection to the topic.
