Going to CCCC
I have missed the last two CCCC gatherings, so I am quite excited to finally be going this year. My presentation will be on innovative and sustainable models of academic and professional publishing and will detail the work we have been doing on Writing Spaces. For the panel, I am in the distinguished company of Charlie Lowe, Dave Blakeseley and Jim Porter. I am excited--this is an excellent group to be a part of.
On a related note, getting a hotel room for this CCCC has been next to impossible. Don't know about other institutions, but we had not been authorized to book travel until mid-February, by which time all three "conference" hotels appeared to be sold out. As a result, I am staying in Indiana. Luckily, it is only a couple of miles from the conference. :)
