      Dearest colleagues,

      --> www.mexicocity2008.com
      --> www.mexicocity2008.com
      --> www.mexicocity2008.com

      As many of you out here on the AMERICANCOMM list know, ACA is involved
      in an effort to promote the CONGRESS OF THE AMERICAS II being held in
      Mexico City from October 8-11, 2008. In fact, this conference builds
      upon the 2006 conference held in scenic Lima, Peru. Come join one and
      all in the intermixing of cultures, languages, and the love of
      communication study/research/practice.

      As former ACA President, ACA Vice President, ACA Webmaster, ACJ
      Founder and Co-Editor, and electronic textbook project manager -- I
      not only invite you to submit your work for possible inclusion in the
      conference, I petition you NOT TO MISS THIS CONFERENCE. It is a
      one-of-a-kind deal, running off of the morning-colloquium European
      model.

      Everyone from around the world is invited. You don't have to be
      "American" to come. ;-)

      inclusion at the Congress of the Americas II, which will be held in

      of the Americas most recently held in beautiful Lima, Peru.

      This series of pioneering academic and professional conferences is
      co-sponsored by the International Communication Association (ICA),
      American Communication Association (ACA), Universidad de San Martin de
      Porres (Peru), Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico City Campus, and the
      InterAmericas Council (IAC), an international non-profit agency
      dedicated to the advancement of communication studies in the Western
      Hemisphere.

      Congress of the Americas II, organized by Tecnológico de Monterrey,
      Mexico City Campus, seeks to bring North, Central and South America
      into a fusion of Western Hemispheric understanding. The theme of this
      conference is: "Exploring Media Convergence, Public Communication, and
      Intercultural Communication." All submissions related about the
      following areas are welcomed: mass media (Internet, television, radio,
      and so on), journalism, public relations, advertising, public
      communication, corporate communication, political communication,
      public opinion, media law, cultural studies, semiotics, photography,
      visual design, and communication technology.

      Come and enjoy the blending of cultures, the joyful mixing of
      languages, and the shared focus on communication scholarship among
      professional colleagues and hemispheric friends. Whether you are a
      frequent flyer throughout the Americas or not, this is truly an event
      NOT TO BE MISSED.

      To receive continuously updated information about the CONGRESS OF THE
