Comments: Individual subscription information on the web site
as well as information and FAQ's about the CD-ROMs. There are
also discussion items and essays on Saving Private Ryan, Amistad,
CNN's Cold War, and a host of other topics. The Table of Contents
for the last thirty years is there as well. The last two issues dealt with
Television as Historian (Vols. 30.1 and 30.2).

Next conference is in November, 2002, a year from this
Fall, on The American West(s) in Film, Television, and History 
at the Kansas City Marriott, Country Club Plaza--just a few blocks 
from the Nelson Art Gallery, a major institution and just next door 
to the Kansas City Arts Institute. We are looking for energetic 
people to serve as Area Chairs and will put a list of existing and 
available Area Chair topics on the web site this summer.

During the Fall of 2002, we will have panels at the Puebla, Mexico meeting
of the PCA/ACA. Please contact our panel organizer, James Yates, for
details and visit the Mexico web site for lots of information on the place, 
meeting, the amenities. Direct flights from Houston to Puebla at discount

Most sessions will be on the campus of the Universidad de las Americas
(UDLA), a school resembling San Diego State U or other Southern
California campuses.
