Mapping Meaning brings together artists, scientists and scholars to explore new modes of acting in the face of social and ecological crises. Inspired by a photograph from 1918 depicting an all-female survey crew, Mapping Meaning supports the creative work and scholarship of those working at edges and ecotones, who are pushing against traditional disciplinary boundaries. Since 2010 this multi-generational collective has been gathering together around experimental knowledge practices.

„There are no healthy people left in the world“ – This profane announcement appears in Plague Inc. (Ndemic Creations 2012), a digital disease[1] simulator. It proudly proclaims that the pathogen, which was raised to deadly infectiousness and efficiency by the player, has now conquered the world and thus irreversibly driven human civilization to the brink of its existence. The disease as the destroyer of worlds in Plague Inc.

Dear colleagues,

Heather Lang and I are reaching out to writing studies faculty at liberal arts colleges to form a possible roundtable for the Association of Rhetoric and Writing Studies 2018 Annual Conference. The goal of this roundtable is to better represent the status of rhetoric and writing at the undergraduate level (beyond the first year) at liberal arts colleges.

Below you will find a draft of our proposal. We are asking for interested participants to send in 50-word summaries of your contributions by June 8th. That will give us a week to collaborate with participants and finalize the proposal before the June 15th deadline.
