Architecture and Design for the 2009 National Conference of the Popular
Culture Association and American Culture Association, to be held at the New

follies, urban image, baseball parks, fashion design, Buckminster Fuller,
urban memory, Disneyland, railroad stations, Frank Lloyd Wright, literary
architecture, shop-houses, mobile homes, folk art, Orientalism, and the
effect of television on the home. It is truly a broad arena! Please e-mail a
