concrete (roommate match- ups for the next SCS/UFVA conference).
Pedagogical, historical, theoretical, and production issues pertaining to
film and TV studies are welcomed.

>Any others that are essential? If there are lists you like that deal
generally with collection development and acquisition issues, I'd love to
hear about them too.
