Special Issue of

Texts & Technology
Fall/Winter 1999

Guest Editors John F. Barber and Janice R. Walker

Special guest editors John F. Barber and Janice R. Walker seek submissions
for a special issue of _Readerly/Writerly Texts_ focusing on issues of
texts and technology to be published Fall/Winter 1999. Selected essays
will also be included in an anthology from a major publisher.

Specifically, we are seeking essays that provide innovation and insights
covering a broad range of perspectives including, but not limited to,
computer-aided instructional design and applications, cyberculture and its
manifestations in and out of the classroom, multimedia and hypermedia and
their effects on society as well as on our conceptions of literacy as
readerly/writerly texts go digital, and ideological constructs and clashes
in the world of cyberspace and the cyborg. Essays selected for this
special issue should address socio-cultural, ideological, technical,
and/or pedagogical concerns surrounding the use of technology in the
clasroom and in society as a whole.

Manuscripts of 15-20 pages (double-spaced, using Times New Roman 12 point
or similar standard font) must be prepared following MLA manuscript
format. Include three, double-spaced hard copies, a self-addressed
envelope large enough to contain your manuscript, and sufficient
unattached postage to mail the copies to three readers. Do not identify
the author by name in the manuscript or notes; instead, include a cover
letter which contains the author's address and the title of the work. Use
the third person to refer to your authorship of previous works.

Send three copies of submissions (including a 250-300 word abstract) by no
later than December 1, 1998 to:
