krystala soon to sweep ucla

below is the text of my paper's (and nine other papers') acceptance to the Queer Studies Conference 2010 to be staged in Royce Hall, University of California – Los Angeles on October 8-9, 2010. sumaakin nawa ang suerte.:)
Hello all!
I wanted to let each of you know that your papers have been accepted in the Queer Studies Area for the MPCA/MACA conference this Fall. You will find the queer area panels attached in PDF. The dates and times for presentations are not decided yet, but you will be able to find that on the conference website after all of the panels are organized.
I ask that you please review ALL of the information for yourself and let me know (no later than May 30) if there are changes that need to be made for your program listing.
If you have been marked as the "panel chair," this only means that you will need to keep time. Please plan for a 15-minute presentation, or possibly less in the roundtable. Also, I did not request a DVD player if a request was not included with your submission.

I hope this finds each of you well, and have a wonderful summer!
