Teaching Writing in the Digital Age: Literacy, Access, and Community (Roundtable)
The purpose of this roundtable is to debate and explore the complex interrelationships between notions of literacy, access, and community and the pedagogical implications they bring to the 21st Century composition classroom. Possible topics include new definitions of literacy, ethical and material questions of access, and the impact of technology on the formation of communities within and beyond the classroom.

Of particular interest are proposals that consider how technology enables students to engage with a community beyond the classroom (eg. pedagogies of digital activism or assignments that connect students to outside organizations or sites). Voices of adjunct faculty members are encouraged!

Send 250-300 word abstracts to lynn.reid14@gmail.com.
