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

Understanding why gas prices rise, filtering FEMA
messages, reading new genome maps, 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 27th meeting of
the Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture
Associations Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
February 8-11, 2006
Hyatt Regency, Albuquerque

Proposals for papers and panels on the intersection of
technical communication and culture are welcome in
areas such as the following:

--Ideology and ethics: who encodes these methods? who
decodes them?

--Pedagogical implications: how do we "teach" new
methods and genres, or how do we apply older methods
to current trends?

--Collaboration, structure, and culture: how does the
workplace affect these?

--Philosophies and research methods: could IM be our
newest tool for research?

--Visual theory, design, usability, especially of
online environments

--Genres: websites, reports, television news and
programs, manuals, forms, flyers

Please send a 200-word proposal by November 15, 2005
to the following:
