CFP: Digital Citizenship: Technology, Documentation, and the Divide
Editors: Adrienne Lamberti and Anne R. Richards

have been greatly complicated by the digital divide. Because of the
increasing reliance on new media to convey information previously conveyed
in print, critical inquiry into the accessibility and usability of digital
documentation is needed.
