2016 C&W Reviews


Thank you to all the reviewers and editors who contributed to making the Computers & Writing 2016 Reviews section possible. The theme for this year’s conference was “Crossing Wires: Reaching Across Campus, Between Disciplines, and Into Communities.” Featured here are reviews of some of the many sessions that explored how Computers & Writing can expand its horizons in regards to scholarship and pedagogy. Some topics that emerged from the conference ranged from embodiment and social media research, participatory and user design in social justice and access projects, and the exploration of what Digital Humanities means in particular disciplines and institutions. Leave comments on the review posts and also use the #cwcon hashtag on Twitter and Facebook to keep the conversation from the conference moving.
