Where: Wellington, New Zealand.

Theme: Power and Place. ANZCA (The Australian & New Zealand Communication Association) is an inclusive organisation and welcomes a wide variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives on communication, place, and power. See the conference website at http://anzca08.massey.ac.nz/ for inspiration and streams – including a stream dedicated to discourse and culture.

Who: The ANZCA08 speakers are all leading names in communication and cover the spectrum of approaches to power and place:

* Maxwell McCombs (famous for his development of agenda setting theory, still one of the most influential theories of media effects);
* Jennifer Craik (internationally renowned in cultural and media theory, including globally cited work on the cultural power of fashion);
* Nicky Hager (has changed the face of politics in New Zealand through his investigative journalism work, and continues to hold politicians and public relations operators from all sectors of the political spectrum to account in his best-selling books);
* Karen Ross (widely published on gender, power, and communication, and is the foundation editor of a new journal, Communication, Culture and Critique, which will launch in March 2008).

Plus an opening address by Ngatata Love (Professor of Business Development at Victoria University of Wellington). Professor Love has worked extensively on Mâori land issues and Waitangi Tribunal cases, and is former Chief Executive of Te Puni Kokiri (Ministry of Mâori Development).
