•Cultural Politics and the State•
Papers are currently being accepted for the Southwest/Texas Popular
Culture & American Culture Association's Annual Conference being held
in Albuquerque February 2007.

To further explore the role of popular culture, a new Area was
developed in 2005 to explore the ways in which cultural production and
politics interact with the State. This Area is currently seeking new
and provocative papers that illustrate the critical role popular
culture assumes in constructing our collective understandings of the
political landscape(s) in which we live. You are invited to submit
your work to "Cultural Politics and the State" and join in a lively
discussion of issues ranging from television shows to urban planning
policy. Submissions from all academic backgrounds are encouraged for a
truly interdisciplinary experience.

WHAT: 28th Annual Meeting of the Southwest/Texas Popular
Culture/American Popular Culture Annual Conference

WHEN: February 14-17, 2007
WHERE: Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Abstracts are due November 15, and must be 150-250 words. Please

This training made the working class forget both its hatred and its
spirit of sacrifice, for both are nourished by the image of enslaved
ancestors rather than that of liberated grandchildren.
