    > I am looking for one more paper to complete a proposal for a panel at
    > the
    > next ASA convention on the political uses of video cassettes in
    > Africa.
    > The three papers already in hand concern the use of video cassettes by
    > Islamicists in Northern Nigeria; a Yoruba agit-prop video made in the
    > wake
    > of the annulment of the June 12, 1993 Nigerian presidential election;
    > and
    > the politics of hybrid melodramatic forms in Ghanaian video feature
    > films.
    > Paper proposals on any aspect of the topic will be considered, but I'm
    > particularly interested in extending the geographical range of the
    > panel,
    > e.g. by including a paper on South Africa.
    > The deadline for submission of the panel proposal is March 15th, so if
    > you
    > are interested, please be prompt.
