CCCC 2006 in Review

Welcome to Across the Disciplines' review of the 2006 Conference on College Composition and Communication, held March 22nd-25th in Chicago. Our review of the conference ("Composition in the Center Spaces: Building Community, Culture and Coalitions") continues a tradition of criticism in the form of hypertextual response to some of our field's most important emerging ideas and trends. We welcome reviewers and your responses to the reviews. Thanks for joining us.
