The conference theme "Communication, Culture and Environments" is intended
to be broadly interpreted to address issues of communication and culture as
they relate to specific environments -- not only natural, but also social,
political, institutional, technological, legal, urban, local, and global.
Presentations exploring the intersection of class, race, gender and
sexuality with communication environments are also encouraged.  Possible
areas of concern include but are not limited to:  how communication and
specific environments intersect; the role of communications technology such
as radio, cable access, video and the Internet in environmental and other
activism; the role of communication technologies in creating cultural and
social environments;  the role of mainstream media in reporting
environmental issues.

A limited number of scholarship funds are available for low income
participants.  For an application, please contact Bernadette
Barker-Plummer, [log in to unmask] or Department of Communication,
University of San Francisco, 2130 Fulton Street, San Francisco, CA 94117.
