TRANSFORMATIONS 

 

JOIN CEA IN ATLANTA!

 

The Big Peach. The ATL. The Dogwood City. Atlanta is a city always reimagining itself. The city’s history parallels America's own complicated and continuing story. This spirit of TRANSFORMATION—the theme of CEA 2024—is captured in the city's seal featuring a phoenix rising from the ashes. The image captures Atlanta's resilience as a city in how it emerged from the devastation of the Civil War to become a modern industrial metropolis, the center of the movement for Civil Rights, and what the New York Times describes as “hip-hop’s center of gravity.”

We are looking for new chapters for our first year composition textbook Digitally Mediated Composing and You: A Beginners Guide to Understanding Rhetoric and Writing in an Interconnected World 

We are looking for writers to contribute four new chapters in Digitally Mediated Composing and You. Because these chapters are filling gaps in an existing text, the topic and direction of each chapter is predetermined, as is the format, but each chapter should be written in the unique voice of the author, and there is a lot of room for experimentation and play within the format!

We hope to encourage an inclusive forum for exchanging perspectives, experiences and practices.

Surplus Data/Surplus Subjects

Northeast Modern Langauge Assocation (NEMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

Subtitled “Surplus Data,” the Winter 2022 issue of Critical Inquiry began by proclaiming that, “It is no longer enough to say that data is big. Data is now in a state of surplus” (Halprin et al. 197). As private and state actors rush to generate ever more surplus surveillance data about consumer-citizens and workers across domains of life, literary scholars are compelled to question how this data is made meaningful and by whom. After all, data never speaks for itself; it must be assigned value and transformed into narratives. These surveillance stories often reify “identities of suspicion” (Monahan), marking marginalized people as themselves surplus subjects.

In this roundtable session, we intend to prompt a conversation about the prevailing beliefs concerning “digital natives” in the context of the pandemic-era college writing classroom. As most current college writing students have had some experience, typically for the first time, with online learning in high school during the pandemic, we want to foster a discussion about college instructors’ experiences of their students’ abilities, including the associated opportunities and pitfalls, in attempting to navigate these online academic environments.

Navigating the security in the future of digital writing among technological transformation Living in this post-pandemic age, the insecurity from fear, suffering, and spacial constraint is now extended by technology to a new setting: academia, particularly the writing classroom. The latest technological transformation, like AI-powered writing assistants and tools, are challenging traditional writing pedagogy and practice, challenging us to work with such a “technological problematic” (Sundvall 5). In the past, technological transformations, such as personal computing and the advent of the internet, have established the field of digital writing.
