From:  Peter Rollins, Program Chair for
    Puebla meeting of PCA/ACA

Dear Popular Culture Enthusiasts.

The Mexico meeting of PCA/ACA will take
place in Puebla, Mexico next fall, October
18-21, 2001.  We are really excited about
the event--which includes tours, parties,
banquets, musical moments along with the
usual papers and presentations.

I now have a full panoply of Area Chairs
for the meeting, but I may have left a gap
or two.....Here is what we are looking for
right now...

Area Chairs lacking for....

Fidel Castro:  Early and Late Images and

Socialist Realism as an Artistic Style in
    Latin America

Education in the US, Canada, and Latin

Some of you may have great ideas for
other topics.  Let me know.....Here is a
list of the current Areas for which we
DO have Area Chairs:

Globalization of  Culture
Tourism and Travel Culture
Gender and Gender Roles
 Food and Culture
Great Leaders in Film and Fiction
Technical Communications
Comics and Fotonovelas
Drug Wars
Ethnicity and Race
    Chicano Culture
Mexico--History and Culture
    Pre-Civil War Mexico in US debates
    20th Century Mexico
    Mexican Images of the US
    US Images of Mexico
The Arts
    Art and Architecture
        Superrealism and the Latin Imagination:
            Garcia Marquez and the Superrealist School
    Film and TV
        Film &  History: Movies and the Past, Movies to Move
            the Present
        Literature to Film: The Art of Adaptation
        Latin American and  Cuban Films and Filmmakers
        Video Poetry

        Dance and  Culture

Material Culture
    Food and Culture

If I left out a vital topic and you are interested and
qualified to act as an Area Chair, please contact me.

Many thanks,

Basic information on the Mexico Conference will accumulate at the web site:

Click on "Popular Culture/American Culture" track (upper left) and
       then, once on the next page, click on "Subject Area" box for
       the spectrum of Areas and details about Area Chairs.

Please check the above source on a regular basis.  There are programs
      there for past conferences--a resource which newcomers might like
      to check for the flavor of the meetings.  We take the Walt Whitman
      approach to cultural studies and contain multitudes.

Absolute deadline for proposals to Area Chairs is 1 June, 2001, but
early proposals find the most compatible panels.

Best way to Puebla....Fly Delta Airlines from Dallas to Puebla Airport
      or fly Continental Airlines from Houston to Puebla Airport.   It is that
      easy!   Cab ride should cost no more that 170 pesos or $15.

Best places to stay in Puebla....See web site for hotel details.

Area Chairs are in charge of panels and will submit them to the Program Chair.
      Participants are required to register and to pay the registration upon
      of their proposal. (This requirement is for the good of all.)  Fill in
the on-line
      registration form and mail check to Peter Rollins (address, above).  To
      on-line and fiscal registrations must be completed UPON ACCEPTANCE OF
      YOUR PROPOSAL and not later.  This rule helps everybody in planning for
       a successful meeting.

Historical tours are always part of the mix....Keep track via the web site.
