CFP: Technical Communication & Culture
Submission deadline: November 15, 2005

Understanding why gas prices rise, filtering FEMA

technical information in recent days. How much of that
information is communication? How does technology
modify the information?

Share your ideas and join us for the 27th meeting of
the Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture
Associations Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
