Dr. Jen Almjeld was selected as the 2016 recipient of the Computers and Composition Michelle Kendrick Outstanding Digital Production/Scholarship Award for her collaborative webtext (composed with undergraduate students from her WRTC 420: Feminist Rhetorics course) titled, "The f-word: A decade of hidden feminism in Kairos,” which was published in Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology and Pedagogy.  This award was inaugurated in 2006 to recognize the creation of outstanding digital productions, digital environments, and/or digital media scholarship. It acknowledges that any single mode of communication, including the alphabetic, can represent only a portion of meaning that authors/designers might want to convey to audiences. This award recognizes the intellectual and creative effort that goes into such work and celebrates the scholarly potential of digital media texts and environments that may include visuals, video animation, and/or sound, as well as printed words.
