Paper topics might include (but are not limited to) those that address:
- issues of (re)presentation through computers (Web site analysis and design; rhetorical and aesthetic features),
- discourses involving computers (blogging, Twitter, social networks, viral video, live feeds),
- theories focused on the relationship between computers and culture,
- uses of computers in particular contexts and the impacts thereof (computers and pedagogy, online literary journals, political campaigning),
- the relationship between computers and cultural forces (such as news, politics, and terrorism),
- security/privacy/fraud and computers (online security issues and narratives, spam, scams, and hoaxes).
While we will consider any relevant paper, we have a preference for those that involve transferable methodological approaches. This is an interdisciplinary conference, and other conference attendees would benefit from being able to adapt your research methods to their future research.
Scholars, teachers, professionals, artists, and others interested in computer culture are encouraged to participate. Graduate students are also particularly welcome with award opportunities for best graduate papers. More information about awards can be found at
If you have any questions, contact the Computer Culture area co-chairs, Andrew Chen (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Joseph Chaney (email@example.com).
