CALL FOR PAPERS -- Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Association &
Southwest/Texas American Culture Association, January 29-31, 1998, Holiday
Inn, Lubbock, Texas
    
Our region has a wealth of literary, visual, and media images and legacies
which are often overlooked by national meetings and publications concerned
with the "big picture." We invite scholars of literature, the arts and
architecture, media, folklore, and anthropology to share their perspectives
on American life in the Southwest. Please bring your studies to this
centrally located meeting in "the Hub City."  Slide shows and videos are
welcome as are panels and workshop formats. The Proceedings from the last
two years have been placed on CD-ROM; we will repeat this innovative
measure with the 1998 proceedings.

Graduate students giving papers are eligible for two awards: the Peter C.
Rollins Prize goes to the best PCA paper by a graduate student; the Michael
K. Schoenecke Prize goes to the best ACA paper by a graduate student.
Graduate students are encouraged to enroll in a credit option from Oklahoma
State University for attending the conference; English 4520 counts for
undergraduate and graduate credit, with more work for the graduate students.
    
*Submission: Send a 200-word abstract to the appropriate Area Chair by
November 3, 1997.

* Pre-Registration: $60 for professionals and $40 for students.
Registration at the conference will be $65 for professionals and $45 for
students. Please make checks payable to SW/TXPCA and send them to Michael
Schoenecke (see Sports) upon acceptance to the program.

* Accommodations: We are housed in the Holiday Inn on Loop 289.  All room
rates will be $69/night (double or single).  Call (806)  797-3241 or
1-800-Holiday for reservations and mention PCA to ensure the discounted
room rates.

* Places to visit:  At the heart of the Texas Panhandle, Lubbock  is the
home of Texas Tech University.  Campus visitors can tour the Vietnam
Archives, the Southwest Collection, and the Ranching-Heritage Center. Down
in the Depot District, The Hub City Brewery, the Cactus Theater, and Kyle's
88 Key Cafe are just a few of the places for food and entertainment on
Buddy Holly Avenue. In January, visitors can catch a Lady Raiders game and
see the Texas Tech's women's basketball team, the 1995 NCAA National
Champions, in action.  Other interesting places to visit  in Lubbock
include the antique stores and coffee houses, located throughout the city,
and even a cigar bar.  The Llano Estacado and Caprock wineries are also
located here, and a tour to one of them will be scheduled during the
conference.  For the athletically inclined, Holiday Inn guests receive a
free membership to Pyramid Fitness (next to the hotel) during their stay.
