Seeking paper proposals on News Culture on the Web for the 24th annual meeting of the Southwest/Texas PCA/ACA at Albuquerque, New Mexico. Noting the popularity and expansion of news sites and resources on the Web, we are confronted with the possibility that the Internet will be the dominant news site of the future. What advantages does this multi-media resource promise? What limitations might it (or we) face? What are its current strengths and weaknesses? Are there particular Web sites that deserve our critical attention now? Does the Web offer promise for alternative news sources? Any proposal that might engage the interest of Web news junkies will be considered.
Please submit a one-page description of your project along with a brief account of your academic career and any research experience in this area. (Note: you do not have to be an established expert in the field; selection is made on the basis of the interest your paper is likely to attract.)
Send proposal and abbreviated CV by December 1, preferably via email, to Joseph Chaney, the Area Chair for Computer Culture.
