Proceedings of the Computers & Writing Annual Conference, 2022

Originally scheduled for 2020, but delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Computers & Writing 2022 was hosted by East Carolina University from Thursday, May 19th – Sunday, May 22nd, 2022. The theme for the conference was Practicing Digital Activisms. In their call for proposals, the conference directors observed that "C&W scholars are poised to be leaders in analyzing, understanding, and using the digital tools that have been taken up for activist and justice-oriented projects." With that in mind, they sought proposals that would "explicitly practice, promote, and analyze digital activisms toward social justice."
