Our theme for the 2018 Computers and Writing conference is Digital Phronesis: Culture/Code/Play. Often described as “practical wisdom,” phronesis represents an enactment of good judgment guided by both learned knowledge and lived experience. Phronesis comes from our histories, our education, and reflections on our experiences. We encourage submissions to focus on intersections of formal learning and embodied experience.
