Call For Papers:

Whose Web is it Anyway?

Currents in Electronic Literacy (ISSN 1524-6493) is now accepting submissions for its Spring 2003 issue, "Whose Web Is It Anyway?" Completed articles for this issue are due February 15, 2002.

The surge in the use of technology and the Internet in education and in society more generally raises a number of questions, both for those who use these technologies and those who do not. Among these questions are:

* How does the Internet limit or offer new possibilities for various groups of people, including those with low incomes, those with disabilities, or others?

* How visible are race and gender on the Web?

* What relationship exists between globalization and the use and spread of new information technologies?

* What role does technology play in cultural memory and cultural literacy?

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the questions that interest us; Currents welcomes articles that address these and other questions from a literary, critical, theoretical, aesthetic, rhetorical, practical or pedagogical standpoint.

While our focus for the Spring 2003 issue will be these issues, we also welcome submissions on any aspect of electronic literacy for this issue.

Please address any questions and submit completed articles via e-mail (preferred) or regular mail to:
