Call For Papers/Presentations


Technical Writing in the Americas: Ending and Starting a New Millenium
The 4th Congress of the Americas
September 29-October 2, 1999
Universidad de las Americas
Cholula/Puebla, Mexico

The Latin American Congress of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association is currently seeking proposals for presentations on International Issues in Technical Writing. We are especially interested in papers on issues that affect tech writing and trade between the US and Mexico or other Latin American countries, but any international issues will be considered as well. Presentations can be in either English or Spanish.

The University of the Americas is in a beautiful, smog-free mountain valley near Puebla, Mexicos third largest city and one of the wealthiest areas in the country. Cholula, the "sacred city," has a long history of occupation beginning in 1400 B.C., and was one of the most important regional centers in Meso-America. UDLA is Mexico's finest private university. The students and faculty generally speak English and are most cooperative and gracious to visitors. The locals in Puebla, the site of Mexico's Volkswagen plant, are also most welcoming. The food, especially the "comida tipica," is something you will long remember. There are many interesting tourist sights both in Puebla and within a short drive of the city. Tours are planned.

Conference participants generally stay in one of three of Puebla's finest hotels. Rates for hotels, meals and transportation are exceptionally low in this area.

To submit a presentation, send a proposal of not more than 500 words, and a one hundred word abstract to:

Dr. Michael Gos
Department of English and Communications
Lee College
PO Box 818
Baytown, TX 77522

Proposal deadline is April 20, 1999.
