Comments: Individual subscription information on the web site
as well as information and FAQ's about the CD-ROMs. There are
also discussion items and essays on Saving Private Ryan, Amistad,
CNN's Cold War, and a host of other topics. The Table of Contents
for the last thirty years is there as well. The last two issues deal with
The Holocaust in Film.

Next conference is in November, 2002 on The American West(s) in
Film, Television, and History at the Kansas City Marriott, Country Club
Plaza--just a few blocks from the Nelson Art Gallery, a major institution
and just next door to the Kansas City Arts Institute. We are looking for
people to serve as Area Chairs and will put a list of existing and
available Area Chair topics on the web site this summer.

Deadline for proposals is 15 September, 2002.  Early proposals
always get the most compatible panels, so do not wait until the
11th hour!   The Luncheon is included in the registration fee: speakers
include Ray B. Browne, John Cawelti, and Jack Nachbar with special
focus on the impact of Cawelti's pioneering book, _The Six-Gun Mystique_

     Participating authors who have books they wish to have included in the

     request. The publisher should contact Debby Pitts at The Scholar's

Some years back, we produced a wonderful issue on the The
American Frontier in Film and TV and we are going back to the well.
