We hope that you are all doing well and staying safe during these uncertain times, and we hope that those of you who were able to attend or present at CCCC virtually this year had a successful conference. In previous years, the DRC has set up an informational table for conference attendees to find out more about us and to peruse our most recent publications. Since we could not be at CCCC in person this year, we offer some of those resources for you here.
Did You Attend a Session on Digital Rhetoric? You Can Still Be a Reviewer!
If you attended a session at CCCC pertaining to digital rhetoric and would like to be a session reviewer, there is still time! Please visit the call for session reviews for more information; drafts are due on the DRC website by April 24 and will go live on April 30.
