Locating Computers & Writing

Locating Computers & Writing

In a fit of curiosity and being in general inquisitive about the histories, locations, ideologies, and general metadata of our discipline (not to mention being slightly jealous of this year’s C&W attendees), I built a database of the history of locations of the Computers & Writing conference. I wanted to see where C&W has been in a geographic sense, and this gives a snapshot. (See also the very interesting CWCON Memorabilia project, which gives a pack rat’s view of the conference.)

Clicking into the map, you’ll find the data I’ve begun loading into the database, including links to web material and the conference theme, with more to come. It’s simple now, and there are definitely some holes and reformatting I’d like to do, but it’s a start.

See an error? Something missing? Want to add data? Feel like shaming me into attending C&W 2017 at U of Findlay? Contact me and I’ll be happy to add you both to the database and the Google maps file.
