>Communication, Culture & Technology
>Managing Editor, gnovis
>As Georgetown University's peer-reviewed journal of Communication,
>Culture and Technology (CCT), gnovis strives to foster innovative
>research and design, reward scholarly excellence, and celebrate the
>exploration and understanding of technology as it both shapes and is
>shaped by political, economic, social, and cultural actors and
>institutions. gnovis seeks to place disciplinary paradigms into
>dialogue with each other, illuminating the clarity and contradictions
>therein and the manner in which they are codified into our social fabric.
>The Peer Review: gnovis is a peer-reviewed journal that employs a
>double-blind review process. Professors may nominate students' works
>that in order to recognize their academic achievement, intellectual
>rigor, and innovative transdisciplinary approach to scholarship.
>These articles are published as "Feature Articles".
>gnovis' Distinguished Peer Reviewers are those CCT students who have
>demonstrated exceptional academic achievement and forward-thinking
>scholarly work in their own studies, are able to recognize and
>discriminate exceptional scholarship produced by their peers, and
>show a commitment to furthering the values of CCT-minded scholarship
>in both academic and professional endeavors.
>The Multimedia Features: Interdisciplinary thought and research does
>not occur in a vacuum, nor is it strictly articulated through
>academic papers. As an online journal, we have the opportunity to
>explore the dialogue between disciplines in new and creative ways.
>gnovis Multimedia Feature Articles seek to move classroom learning
>off the page, to explore CCT-related themes as they occur in other
>academic and professional settings. Feature Articles recognize CCT
>studentís ability to extend classroom learning beyond the CCT
>boundaries by molding cutting-edge scholarship with multi-media
>journalism. Feature Article Writers participating in this initiative
>submitted proposals for consideration articulating their unique
>approach to developing these themes. Those chosen sought to reach
>beyond the format of a traditional printed scholarly journal and
>proposed a creative use of text and technology to articulate their theme.
