Convergence: The International Journal of New Media Technologies
Call for Papers - Vol 12. No 4. Winter 2006 Special Edition


Guest-edited by Simon Mills, Gavin Stewart & Sue Thomas

This special edition of Convergence marks the tenth anniversary of the trAce Online Writing Centre, UK. To commemorate this landmark event, the guest editors are seeking to evaluate the state-of-the-art of new media writing(s).

This special edition will seek to re-assess the claims made for these forms over the last decade, to challenge the dominant ideologies and terminologies of this maturing field, and to provide a critical re-evaluation of new media writing(s) in all its forms.

We encourage discussion of the following:

- The institutional settings of new media writing(s)
- The relationship between academia and new media writing(s)
- Re-assessments of the claims made for hypertext, new media or digital writing(s) over the past decade
- Art policies and development strategies for new media writing(s)
- The audience for new media writing(s)
- The economics of new media writing(s)
- Pedagogical approaches to new media writing(s)
- The historical context of new media writing(s)
- The relationship between new media writing(s) and other digital arts
