I am writing to invite you to contribute an article to the 2021 CCCC Intellectual Property Annual. If you are interested in contributing, please email me at klun...@writing.ucsb.edu so that I can coordinate entries.
As you may know, the CCCC Intellectual Property Caucus sponsors an annual that reviews the Top Intellectual Property Developments of each year. Most articles are ~2,000-5,000 words, and they inform teacher-scholars about current IP issues. The annual is posted to the CCCC website, and it is archived by the eScholarship library. Please refer to the latest issue for examples, https://cccc.ncte.org/cccc/committees/ip/2019-2020-developments
Several potential topics/trends for 2021 are listed below, and you are encouraged to focus on specific examples. You are also very welcome to propose a topic. Contributions will be due March 1, 2022, and the annual will appear in June 2022. Again, please email me about the topic(s) you would like to cover so that I can coordinate the contributions.
In addition, if you have published an article, book, or digital scholarship regarding IP this past year, please send me the citation information and a brief abstract (150 words) to be included in a list of publications.
With thanks, Karen Lunsford
