The Federation Rhetoric Committee welcomes proposals for this asynchronous
computer conference that will focus on rhetoric and technology.  The theme
of the conference should be interpreted broadly and inclusively. 
Proposals may range from textual analysis of a single author's text to
pedagogical uses of technology for research and teaching to reviews of
particular software or sources on the Internet. The Federation Proposal
Selection Committee will act quickly on submitted proposals. No fee is
required for making a proposal. 

To retain the exact stylistic features and formatting of each scholar's
work, all proposals (limited to 200-400 words) must be submitted as an
attachment to e-mail to William E. Tanner by May 1, 1998
(f_tanner@twu.edu; +1-[940] 898-2342 [v/m]; +1-[940] 898-2297 [FAX, kindly
identify Tanner since this number is a departmental FAX]).  The
proceedings of the conference will be published on a CD, to be edited by
William E. Tanner and Suzanne Webb, and are to be ordered directly from
Caxton's Modern Arts Press. 

Presentations in final, publishable form must arrive in Microsoft Word as
an attachment to e-mail by June 1, 1998.  Proposals and presentations in
any other form cannot be considered.
