I'll take this opportunity to invite everyone to check the Society for
Animation Studies  WEB site, which is part of the Animation World Network
site at  <>,  for information on our upcoming conference
(University of Wisconsin at Madison, September 25-29).  We hope eventually
to make at least some of the papers presented at this conference and at
previous conferences available through that venue.
I will also be happy to forward conference information to SCREEN-L
subscribers by e-mail.  Send inquiries to me at
