The V Congress of the Americas
18 to 21 October 2001, Cholula/Puebla, Mexico
The Congress of the Americas is in its fifth year, hence
the title V Congress. We study popular culture in its
diverse forms and do not put a barrier on what might be
included at the meeting. The more international the
perspective the better, but national studies are fine.
Politics, music, movies, religion, material culture,
cross-border themes are all invited as are anthropological
and sociological studies. Nowadays, we are also
concerned about pedagogy, especially distance learning
and the Internet classroom.
Scholars attending include Ray and Pat Browne, Douglas
Noverr, Peter and Susan Rollins, Gary and Nan Edgerton,
Bernardo Attias, Joseph A. Stout, Jr., Gary Hoppenstand,
John Bratzel, Michael K. Schoenecke, Tony Giffone,
Elizabeth Fine, David Sokol, and Ken Dvorak. Host
scholars include Paul Rich and Antonio Lara.
The web site has programs from past congresses and
these details should clarify what we do and how we do it.
Our Area Chairs are listed there; contact the one who
seems best related to your field of interest and work with
the Area Chair to find a compatible panel for your
These meetings are friendly, inclusive, and supportive.
They take place in an environment which is safe, colorful,
and there are many opportunities to enjoy the people,
foods, local sites. Tours will be available and there are
over 365 churches in the Puebla-Cholula area!
All of the sessions take place on the campus of the
Universidad de las Americas (UDLA), a wonderful school
which looks like a campus of the California State
University system--Long Beach State, for example. The
faculty, students, and staff want to make the visitors feel
at home, so there will be receptions, musical events, and
banquets included in the registration fee of $120.
