CFP: James Bond (12/15/06; SW/TX PCA/ACA, 2/14/07-2/17/07)
Southwest/Texas Popular & American Culture Associations 28th Annual
The area chair for James Bond and Popular Culture is seeking participants to have a roundtable session on James Bond with a focus on the new Casino Royale movie. If you plan on attending the conference, but donâ€™t plan on giving a paper, this is a good opportunity for you to be a part of the conference and be on the program. We are seeking at least 10-20 folks who would be interesting in participating in this unique discussion. Each person will have 3-5 minutes to give their ideas and comments.
This is a great opportunity for YOU to be ON THE PROGRAM without delivering a formal and traditional paper
Some questions to consider:
How is the current Casino Royale different from the 1967 â€œspoof?â€
How does Daniel Craig stand up as a Bond against who have come before?
How does Craigâ€™s Bond compare with Bond as Ian Fleming wrote him in the 1953?
One could also compare the first Bond, Barry Nelson, to Craigâ€™s Bond. (We WILL
be screening the 1954 television version of Casino Royale)
Anyone interested in this exciting Roundtable should contact the area chair by December 15th.
Please include all contact information.
February 14-17, 2007
