Subject: CATaC'02 Conference - program update, registration info
Dear sister and fellow Humanists:
I'm very pleased to pass on the program and registration information for
CATaC'02. Without wanting to speak for them, I hope that Willard and other
hardy pioneers of the 1998 CATaC conference in London will take pleasure in
seeing the third iteration of this conference - including its representation
of some 14 countries/cultures, including Francophone and Arabic-speaking
countries/cultures (unfortunately _not_ among the 9 countries/cultures
represented in 1998).
We look forward to a diverse range of perspectives and research on "The
Net(s) of Power: Language, Culture and Technology" - and warmly invite
interested Humanists who can to join us in lovely Montral this July. (BTW:
CATaC is scheduled to follow the famous Montral jazz festival: you can come
for the jazz and stay for CATaC!)
Cheers and all best wishes,
*** SAVE and Register Early by May 17 ***
International Conference on
CULTURAL ATTITUDES TOWARDS TECHNOLOGY AND COMMUNICATION (CATaC'02)
12-15 July 2002, University of Montral, Quebec, Canada
The Net(s) of Power: Language, Culture and Technology
This biennial conference series aims to provide an international forum for
the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge research on how diverse
cultural attitudes shape the implementation and use of information and
communication technologies (ICT). "Cultural attitudes" here includes
cultural values and communicative preferences that may be embedded in both
the content and form of ICT - thus threatening to make ICT less the agent of
a promised democratic global village and more an agent of cultural
homogenisation and imperialism. The conference series brings together
scholars from around the globe who provide diverse perspectives, both in
terms of the specific culture(s) they highlight in their presentations and
discussions, and in terms of the discipline(s) through which they approach
the conference theme.
An exciting program has been arranged, including presenters from Australia,
Canada, Germany, India, Iran, Israel, Mexico, Philippines, Saudi Arabia,
South Africa, Sweden, United Arab Emirates, UK and USA. See the conference
website for paper details. Ample time is allowed for open discussions at the
end of each session. The conference concludes with a panel discussion. The
panel is led by session discussants and integrates the themes of the
conference, focusing on future research directions in the converging areas
of culture, technology and communication.
Susan Herring (Associate Professor of Information Science, Adjunct Associate
Professor of Linguistics, Indiana University) will be speaking on "The
language of the Internet: English dominance or heteroglossia".
Laurie Walker, University of Lethbridge, Canada
Lorna Heaton, University of Montreal, Canada
Blocks of rooms have been reserved at the university residences and at the
Royal Terrasse Hotel. Be sure to make your reservation early, particularly

Montebello, a stunning red cedar log chteau famed for its rugged luxury in
beautiful surroundings. Dinner and bus transport to Montebello are included
in the registration fee. Montebello is approximately a one-and-a-half hour
drive from Montreal.
Until 17 May, the conference registration fee is USD300 with further
discounts for authors (one author discount fee per paper) and full-time
students. After 17 May, each fee type will increase by USD40. Conference and
author registration fees include technical sessions, conference dinner and
transport, reception, proceedings, satchels, breakfasts, lunches, morning
and afternoon coffees, panel and closing cocktails. Student registration fee
