Hi all, 
I'm looking forward to participating next year!   Just a heads-up that the CCCC proposal submission system is NEW this year.  And that means everyone needs to create a NEW profile to make it easier to add speakers to the submission.  If you would, please create your new profile at

Also, they've changed the format for the proposals; there's a limit of 4,000 characters for the full proposal description, and a limit of 400 characters for the abstract.  And can I say that it's an, well, interesting interface that you'll want to take a look at in advance? 

Best, Karen

Dear Karen, Alex, Kim, and all,

Thank you for helping to get the business meeting proposal together and advising about the new platform! I look forward to participating again as well. I created my new profile.

I'm teaching a new "essential questions" seminar next year on "Who owns digital writing" so would welcome leading the course development roundtable. Like Kim, I made some minor revisions to the 2021 proposal to include references that echo this year's theme (though last year's already did that pretty well).

Course Development in Intellectual Property/Remix
This roundtable will discuss pedagogical approaches to IP issues, particularly in designing and delivering courses that focus on IP issues in composition. Participants will consider what instructors should cover, what students need to know about IP from a variety of perspectives, including considerations for protecting cultural heritage and indigenous IP and recognizing different cultural approaches to IP, how IP concerns affect student professionalization and post-graduate work, and how students can contribute to the productive and ethical valuation and circulation of various forms of IP.

I'm locked out AGAIN from being able to create a profile.  

Frustrated again,

Would it help to create a new gmail account just for the proposal?  And then forward messages to your preferred address?  kl
