As the Area Chair for Film & History at the Southwest PCAACA meeting
in Albuquerque, 9-12 February, I am looking for some papers to round out
existing panels. Below is a quick list…If you have something that might fit
in comfortably, let me know.
1. US myths and images in film
Now have two papers: one on atomic mushroom cloud image and one
on radical image in film.
2. Latin American Images in US films
Currently have papers on the Spanish-American War and Mexican-American war
plus a paper on WWII efforts to make films for South America audiences.
3. International Cinema and Cultural Images
Currently have items on German Wim Wenders plus a paper on American
propaganda about Germany during WWI.
ADDITIONAL events include a night with Barbara Warne, webmeister of
_The West Wing_ informal web site. (Great place!)
Also, a "debate" between Rob Toplin and Glenn Harris over the meaning of the
landmark film, _Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?_
These panels and events will take place within a larger conference about
Popular Culture and American Culture.
Hope to hear from people about the numbered items (1-3) above...

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.)
