Then too there's the observation made by the Four Historians of the
Apocalypse (to take a hard-Boyled view) of Selfe, Moran, LeBlanc, and
Hawisher that recently members of the C&W community have gotten far
enough along in the field of composition to have some influence--most
recently Faigley's and Selfe's high-honchoing of CCCC. If more Lunsford
don't publish online, so be it. In time many of you reading this will be
of Lunsfordian stature--and by virture of that, time and continued
scholarship and teaching, people will come to online journals.
As we work in both print and pixels, if we cite the pixels in the print,
then attention will be paid. When someof us are up for tenure, if that
still exists down the line, and we point to how often our e-journal work
has been cited, that'll build validity.
Cite it and they will come. And if they don't, they'll retire and
graduate students we have taught will come instead.
