MEXICO MEETING DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 30 JUNE!
  (Meeting is 18-20 October, 2001)

The deadline for proposals for the Mexico meeting
of PCA has been extended to 30 June, 2001--the end
of this month.

We are delighted with the quality of the papers
proposed so far, but Paul Rich of the Universidad de
las Americas (UDLA) has all kinds of social and
meal events planned under the tent of registration--to
include a visit to the Volkswagon plant where ALL
of the Volkswagons you see in the US are made.  (The
tour will be followed by a reception hosted by the
German Ambassador.  There are a number of such
eye-opening events with transportation, food, and
drink thrown in; it will give folks a wonderful chance
to see the economic potential of NAFTA.)

We now have planned a series of poetry readings and
and a film festival with filmmakers introducing and
discussing their works.

Paul Rich is asking for innovative presentation formats
and demanding fewer speakers per panel--a noble objective
for us all!

In any case, please reconsider the meeting and send a
proposal to the appropriate Area Chair.  (Full list is on
the Mexico web site:  www.udlap.mx/congress)
