Additional Information

This year the SW/TX PCA/ACA celebrates its 30th Birthday with our theme, Reeling in the Years: 30 Years of Film, TV, and Popular Culture. Papers are particularly sought on aspects of film, TV, and popular culture of the last 30 years with an emphasis on the popular culture of 1979. This year's luncheon keynote will feature former New Mexico Governor David F. Cargo. Our hard working area chairs and staff have been busy since our February 2008 meeting planning this premier event.
