Ong at MLA 2006
MLA has accepted my panel "Walter J. Ong's Orality and Literacy at 25," which I hope will be the first of a series of 25th anniversary celebrations for the book. MLA's on board, Computers & Writing 2007 will likely be a go, so now it's up to CCCC. Steve may be right: 2007 just might be the year of Ong.
The MLA panel's three papers and presenters are:
"Orality, Literacy, and Ong's Asymmetrical Opposition" by Jerry Harp of Lewis and Clark College
"Orality and Literacy as a Methodological Apparatus for Examining Women's Rhetorics" by Melissa Fiesta of California State University, Long Beach
"Ong, Derrida, and the New Media Theory" by David Martyn of Macalester College
We'll be posting abstracts later this summer.
