Communication is central to all human relationships and to the functioning of all societies. Its nature from classical times to the present day is therefore an appropriate topic for the 77th Anglo-American Conference, especially since it is nowadays an extremely topical subject - witness contemporary agendas of consultation and listening to the public and of knowledge transfer, the past decade's near obsession with the effective management of message, the role of the media, and current debates about the ICT revolution and its contribution to so-called globalisation. The organisers will therefore welcome proposals for sessions and individual papers on all aspects of communication between human beings across a broad chronological and geographical range, and between and within organisations, states, religions, societies and cultures, with contributions welcome from historians of all places and periods. Among the areas which would be especially welcomed are the use and reception of all forms of media over the centuries, the impact of technological change on communication of all kinds, the role of literate and non-literate forms of communication, communication across linguistic, ethnic, religious and ideological boundaries, and the role of communication in the operation and dynamics of religions, states and communities.
