CFP: Technical Communication & Culture
Submission deadline: November 15, 2006

Understanding why gas prices rise or fall, filtering
war reports, reading campaign materials, listening to
the stem cell debate, and following sports blogs are
just some of our encounters with 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 28th meeting of
the Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture
Associations Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Editors of the Schuylkill invite contributions for the Spring

Schuylkill is a graduate journal indexed in the MLA Directory of
Periodicals and the MLA International Bibliography. Due to turnover
issues, the periodical has been defunct for the past several years,
but now has an active and committed editorial staff. The Schuylkill
will be published electronically, and possibly also as a print
journal, if our efforts to secure sufficient funding are successful.
