Computers and Composition Awards

Computers and Composition Charles Moran Award for Distinguished Contributions to the Field

Dates of eligibility for all awards are January 1 thru Decber 31 of the previous year.

The Charles Moran Award for Distinguished Contributions to the Field, inaugurated in 2003 in honor of the 20th anniversary of Computers and Composition, recognizes exemplary scholarship and professional service to the field of computers and writing.

The award celebrates the first 20 years of the journal (1983-2003) in which Charles Moran not only contributed over 30 publications-books, articles, chapters-to the profession but also supported the growth of the journal and field in multiple ways as a valued member of the Computers and Composition Editorial Board. We can think of no other person who better exemplifies what it means to be an esteemed scholar and colleague in these rapidly changing times of the information age.

The award is also designed to complement the journal's other awards--the Hugh Burns Dissertation Award, the Ellen Nold Best Article Award, and the Distinguished Book Award--all presented annually at the Computers and Writing Conference. The Charles Moran Award for Distinguished Contributions to the Field will be given at the Computers and Writing Conference.

Please send letters of nomination for the Charles Moran Award outlining the candidate's ongoing contributions to the field in scholarship and service by March 15 to:
