The Southwest PCA/ACA meeting will have many highlights and special events,
a few of which are mentioned on the web site as "Coming Attractions."

Three session will be of special interest to those in visual studies:

    --a lecture on photography by Krista Erlick, stressing the visual
            of New Mexico in historic and contemporary photography.

    --a "debate" between Robert B. Toplin and Glenn Harris concerrning
            the "radical" nature of the "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner."
            Was the film a breakthough production or was it merely skimming
            the top off a peak in liberal eudeminism?

   --a  session to "meet the editors" with representatives from
            Film&History, Literature/Film Quarterly, and Quarterly
                Review of Film Studies, the Journal of Popular Culture,
                and PostScript

Be there!

The regional meeting for 2005 will take place in Albuquerque, New Mexico,
a favored site for our gatherings. The events will run between February 9-12,
2005 at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque (330 Tijera; 505.842.1234) We have gone
to the downtown area of the city where a massive refurbishing has brought in
shopping and dining opportunities of quality. We are excited about the special
hotel rates negotiated by our new leaders. There is even a special graduate
student rate. (See details on web site.)
