I already sent you this request, but I haven't seen it posted yet - perhaps I got the wrong address - so I'll try again, We are working to get a Popular Culture Association of Canada off the ground (with help from the PCA/ACA) and will be holding our first annual conference in May. The original call was posted on H-Net but was buried in a multiple announcement of some 60 other events and CFPs.
Would you please put out a separate announcement on the listserve of the extended for the call for papers. I know you do this for some topics. It would be much appreciated - we have some hotel rooms to fill!
