College Composition and Communication publishes research and scholarship in rhetoric and composition studies that supports college teachers in reflecting on and improving their practices in teaching writing and that reflects the most current scholarship and theory in the field. The field of composition studies draws on research and theories from a broad range of humanistic disciplines—English studies, rhetoric, cultural studies, gay studies, gender studies, critical theory, education, technology studies, race studies, communication, philosophy of language, anthropology, sociology, and others—and from within composition and rhetoric studies, where a number of subfields have also developed, such as technical communication, computers and composition, writing across the curriculum, research practices, and the history of these fields.

Call for Proposals
In connection with the forthcoming centennial of the National Council of Teachers of English, College Composition and Communication will publish a set of articles, collected as a symposium, articulating, celebrating, and commemorating CCCC’s relationship with NCTE. I thus invite proposals of 250 words addressing the relationship between CCCC and NCTE, due July 1, 2010, at cccedit@yahoo. I look forward to reading them.
Extending the CCC Conversation
On March 4 at 4:00 pm EST, Cindy Selfe and Doug Hesse continued the conversation they began in the Interchange section of the current issue of CCC. They considered two questions. First, how do we define composition? And second, what does this definition mean for our teaching of first-year composition? A recording of this virtual event is available for you to download today!
