Gilgamesh, part 10 - Concluding the puppet-animation based (loosely) on the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh. Gilgamesh finally realises that he cannot rescue Enkidu from the Island of the Dead. He returns home, a sadder and wiser king, but he still has one last trick up his sleeve - the invention of writing. Part 10 of 10.

CFP: 2014 CCCC-IP Annual - This year is the tenth anniversary of the CCCC-IP Annual, a publication created to fulfill the CCCC Intellectual Property Committee?s charge to keep the Conference on College Composition and Communication?s membership informed on key events and developments in intellectual property that took place over the previous year. Archives can be found at http://www.ncte.org/cccc/committees/ip. As 2014 nears its end, we are looking back on what happened over the course of the year in copyright legislation, fair use cases, open access publishing, and notable high-profile plagiarism cases. Developments take place regularly that challenge our notions of what these terms mean, and we engage these developments in a timely manner each year in the CCCC-IP Annual . Typically, each article is an explanation of a particular development in intellectual property and analysis of what its implications are for teachers and scholars of rhetoric and composition. For example, the 2012 Annual contains an...

Wonder Women - I'm interested to read this book by the president of Barnard College: Wonder Women: Sex, Power, and the Quest for Perfection. I don't know that it's gotten much play with the news media or the academic media (Inside Higher Ed, etc.), so I want to do what I can to fix that. Debora Spar is a mom of three just like me. Maybe I'll be a college president one day too, heh. ...

Top 30 Most Cited in Composition Studies - Thanks to Jonathan's coding skills, we have a list of the most cited works in composition studies. These are from the journals Rhetoric Society Quarterly, Rhetoric Review, College Composition and Communication, and College English.

Citational Network Graph: Rhetoric and Composition - Jonathan has done some more technosorcery, producing this time a citational network graph of rhetoric and composition: specifically, the journals College Composition and Communication, Rhetoric Society Quarterly, and Rhetoric Review. JAC wasn't included because it wasn't in the Web of Science database, and College English might go in later; it has so much work in literary studies that we decided to omit it for now. Much of this is as one would expect. For example, clusters show us that Kenneth Bruffee, John Trimbur, Greg Myers, and Joseph Harris are cited together. They all wrote about collaborative learning at a particular time. What I find most interesting about this graph, though, is its more-or-less objective illustration of margins and center. I can't even drag Mina Shaughnessy's Errors and Expectations out of the center. Same with Susan Miller's T...

Browser for Rhetoric Topics - Jonathan has now made a browser for rhetoric and composition topics. Click on a truncated topic on the list, and you see the full topic, a graph showing its career in the journals, and a list of the articles most closely associated with it. Each title on the list is a link directly to the article in JSTOR. Preliminary findings: 1. I wouldn't have guessed that the articles most closely associated with television film radio tv popular media movie movies news magazine films newspaper magazines sports newspapers entertainment advertising examples pictures would be published between the years of 1950 and 1979, but there you go. Also, I'm finding so many articles I wouldn't have found otherwise, including Macrorie's "A Literature Without Criticism" from the above list. 2. Another interesting-to-me topic was ...

Initial Foray into Topic Modeling for Rhetoric and Composition - I?m just getting into topic modeling as a research method, thanks to my husband, Jonathan Goodwin. This post represents my first attempt to make sense of it, because its value hasn?t been immediately comprehensible to me. You take a huge corpus of thousands of academic articles (or whatever), and then run a program, which extracts and presents you with groups of words that tend to occur together in the articles (topics). Jonathan took all of JSTOR?s archives of College English, CCC, Rhetoric Review, Rhetoric Society Quarterly, and JAC and generated 100 topics. Some were coherent, while others seemed more random ? though also somewhat interesting; see postscript. Here?s an example of a coherent one: ...

Framework and WPA Outcomes Aligned - ULL's writing program takes its outcomes from the WPA Outcomes Statement for First-Year Composition. Disclosure: the program adopted these outcomes in academic year 2005-2006, before I came here, but I have affirmed them. Anyway, I've been thinking for some time about the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing and how to integrate its eight habits of mind into our writing program's outcomes. The habits of mind are pretty difficult to measure, and in trying to evaluate how well students demonstrate them seems highly problematic; I imagine a lot of personal bias coming into play on teachers' part and a TON of student resistance to having, say, their curiosity or responsibility evaluated. Still, I agree that students with these habits of mind will be much more successful than those without them...
