Message #241: From: AzTeC SW Archaeology SIG To: "'Matthias Giessler'" Subject: W Texas PCA and ACA, Texas, January 1998 Date: Tue, 24 Jun 1997 20:08:22 -0700 From: Sandra K. Mathews Lamb 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.
