Views from a Distance: A Nephological Model

Cloud-gazing yields insights into shared and evolving disciplinary topoi, particularly when the practice involves a nephological model, i.e., a series of word clouds designed to report on the frequency and recency of selected terms in a series of texts. This installation frames such insights as network sense, a principle guided by conceptual and lexical threads manifest across a series of published keynote addresses delivered at the Conference on College Composition and Communication from 1977–2010.
