Keynote Speaker: Joy Harjo
The 29th Annual Meeting of the
Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture Associations
February 13â€“16, 2008
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Albuquerque, New Mexico
The SW/TX PCA/ ACA invites papers for one of its 65+ Area offerings in
Literature, Film, Television, Science Fiction and Fantasy, Ethnic and
Gender Studies, Ecocriticism, Southwest Culture, Western Studies, Creative
Writing, Pedagogy, and many more!
Since the 1970s, the Southwest/Texas PCA/ACA has sought to foster
interdisciplinary study of popular and American literary, historical,
visual, and other cultural and media texts. While our offerings have grown
over the years to include areas of international study, we still invite
scholars and artists to share their perspectives on American life in the
diverse region of the Southwest.
This yearâ€™s keynote address will be given by Joy Harjo, an internationally
known poet, performer, writer and musician of the Mvskoke/Creek Nation. She
has published seven books of acclaimed poetry including She Had Some
Horses, In Mad Love and War, The Woman Who Fell from the Sky, and her most
recent How We Became Human: New and Selected Poems from W.W. Norton. Among
her many awards are the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers
Circle of the Americas, the Lila Wallace-Readerâ€™s Digest Award, the New
Mexico Governorâ€™s Award for Excellence in the Arts, and the William Carlos
Williams Award from the Poetry Society.
Information about our areas of study, conference travel, lodging, and the
organization can be found on our regularly updated website:
We look forward to seeing you this winter in sunny Albuquerque where we
invite you to explore Route 66, local pueblos, hiking trails, museums, the
Sandia and Isleta casinos, area ski resorts, and nearby Santa Fe.
