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
Area Chairs lacking for....
Fidel Castro: Early and Late Images and
Socialist Realism as an Artistic Style in
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
Comics and Fotonovelas
Ethnicity and Race
Mexico--History and Culture

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