Panel Title: Wild West II: Mythologizing Europe in Inglourious Basterds

This panel seeks participants for a roundtable discussion of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds for the European Popular Culture and Literature area of the SW/TX PCA/ACA conference in February 2010.
Scholars, teachers, professionals, and others are encouraged to participate. Graduate students are also particularly welcome with award opportunities for best graduate papers.
