Lore: An E-journal for Teachers of Writing seeks submissions for the
Digressions section of the Fall 2004 issue. In the past year or so,
blogging has become something of a national pastime with academics becoming
a core group using blogs for personal and professional reasons. Yet even
though many people embrace blogging, many others have no idea what it is or
why anyone would do it. In this issue of Lore, we want to explore the roll
that blogging plays for compositionists and the composition classroom.

Playing with Mother Nature: Video Games, Space, and Ecology

Editors Sidney I. Dobrin, Cathlena Martin, and Laurie Taylor seek
proposals for a new collection of original articles that address the use
and place of space and ecology in video games. This collection will
examine video games in terms of the spaces they create and use, the
metaphors of space on which they rely, and the ecologies that they create
within those spaces. This collection will address the significant
intersections in terms of how and why video games construct space and
ecology as they do, and in terms of how those constructions shape
conceptions of both space and ecology.
