"Sexualities, Technologies, and the Teaching of Writing"
as part of the C&C print issue (Fall 2004)

Computers and Composition Online will publish a special issue on
Sexualities, Technologies, and the Teaching of Writing to supplement the
Fall 2004 print issue, which will explore the many varied and productive
ways in which issues of sexuality are discussed, debated, constructed,
and critiqued in computer-assisted writing courses.

As much as possible, all webtexts should take into consideration current
scholarly work in both sexuality studies and the teaching of writing
with technology. The audience for Computers and Composition Online is
teachers, scholars, educational administrators, and technology users
with a particular interest in computer-enhanced writing instruction.

Submissions should be directed to the following sections:

 * Theory into Practice: Longer, research-based pieces blending
rhetorical and critical theory with technological practice,
acknowledging pedagogical or discursive implications.
 * The Virtual Classroom: Pedagogy and classroom experience, which
may include syllawebs, resource sites, and student projects.
 * Professional Development: Interviews/instructor profiles,
or even a virtual exchange among colleagues working in the area of
 * Reviews: Not only books, but sites, CD/DVDs, events, and other
blended media. Please feel free to suggest items for review.

Submissions for Computers and Composition Online need to be web-aware,
meaning that they not only use the World Wide Web as a medium, they also
take advantage of the benefits of this kind of publishing. Rhizomatic
structures that disrupt traditional linear forms are welcome. Artful use
of graphical interfaces and hypertext are also encouraged. Multimedia
use, including digital video and audio, is also welcome. Here are some
things to keep in mind:

* Purely text-based submissions, such as Microsoft Word (.doc)
or other word-processed documents, are strongly discouraged.
* Software designed for creating websites such as Macromedia
Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive, or Microsoft FrontPage work best.
* Care should be taken to ensure that images load in a reasonable amount
of time. Also, images need to be either original work, used with
permission, or fall under fair use guidelines.
