GRN Call for Proposals and 2007 C&W/GRN Travel Grant Awards!

The 2007 Graduate Research Network invites proposals for work-in-progress presentation at this year's meeting, May 17, 2007, at the annual Computers and Writing Conference hosted by Wayne State University. 

We welcome anyone (graduate students or others) who wants an opportunity to talk about ideas, projects in gestation or in progress, or at any stage in between.
Attend the full day workshop, or attend the morning or afternoon session.

The Graduate Research Network is FREE for all registered conference participants, and all discussion leaders and presenters will be listed in the GRN program. It's a unique opportunity for extended discussion of your ideas--whether you're just exploring ideas, working on your thesis or dissertation, an article, a book project, or just want to preview and fine-tune your conference presentation.

New Home for the GRN-L Listserv!

Announcing the new Graduate Research Network listserv

The Graduate Research Network (GRN) list has a new home. Unfortunately, the old list has met its demise. The removal of the list from the ISU server ended up coinciding with a hard drive crash, and we lost the list of member addresses. :( To subscribe to the new list, please visit:

We apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to move people over to the new list automatically the way we had hoped to. Please pass this along to anyone who may either have been on the old list, or who you think would be interested in participating in the GRN discussions online. Thanks!
