        (March 7-10, 2001 in Albuquerque.)

    The Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association and American Culture
Association are holding a series of panels at the next meeting of these
regional groups, March 7-10, 2001 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The
conference will be centered at the Sheraton Oldtown Hotel--a beautiful,
newly-renovated facility, that is within walking distance of Albuquerque's
historic "Old Town" district.  This is the SW/TX PCA/ACA's third year to
meet in Albuquerque.  For us, it is a perfect venue that offers the sights,
sounds, tastes, and museums of the Southwest.

    Conference information is available on the organization's
web site and will be continuously updated:    [note the three w's]

    Papers are requested on television and its impact on American
society and culture.  The field described is a broad one, but a couple of
approaches are suggested--views of television from the outside and the
inside.  The first covers such issues as television and pulbic expectations,
hopes, and perceptions of, and responses to, programing.  the second offers
an opportunity for analysis of media agendas, an opportunity to evaluate the
forces that have pushed television in one direction or another throughout
its history.

Likely topics:

The Television as "the Tube of Plenty"
The Television as Wasteland
Who's Watching, Big Brother or a Voyeuristic Society?
Television and Gender/Racial Stereotypes
Television and Gender/Racial Bending
Cops and Robbers
Cowboys and Indians
Talk Shows

Papers treating any aspect of the topic are welcome.  Please submit
    150-word abstract by 1 November, 2000.

Please respond to the Area Chair.
