The on-site Computers and
Writing Conference 2002 was held on the Illinois State University
campus May 16-19, 2002. Running concurrently with the on-site conference
will be an on-line conference. This site provides information
on all aspects of participating in and attending both aspects of
The conference will explore the ways in which computers are changing
how we conceive of and deal with problems of accessibility in writing
instruction, especially as these problems hinge on the relationship
between the virtual and the physical. Do we assess writing
in virtual space and writing embodied in a physical document differently?
How do the modes of virtual access (MOOs, web boards, listservs)
pose problems for the uninitiated and how can we address those problems?
How are traditionally disenfranchised students (the physically disabled,
the economically disadvantaged) affected by the availability of
virtual instruction? These are just a few of the questions that
will engage participants through a variety of formal and informal
discussions over the four days of the conference.
