I hadn’t seen this CFP before, for some reason: it’s calling for 250 word abstracts about blogs, and accepted abstracts will go to 3000 word papers that will be compiled into a peer-reviewed, web collection edited by Clancy Ratliff (who’s doing a PhD on gender and blogging) and other people at the University of Minnesota.
