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,

student rate. (See details on web site.)
