      Fifth Annual Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference
      http://www.crossroads2004.org/

      Fifth International Conference
      June 25 – June 28, 2004
      Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, USA


      *** FIRST CALL ***
      *** SESSION PROPOSALS ***

      Session proposals for the Fifth International Crossroads in Cultural
      Studies
      Conference, to be held at the University of Illinois, Urbana-
      Champaign,
      from
      June 25-28, 2004, are now being accepted for consideration.

      The mandate of the 2004 conference is to connect critical cultural
      analyses
      to progressive political action and social justice in an age of
      violence and
      global uncertainty.

      At this time, we are pleased to announce that Lawrence Grossberg
      (University
      of North Carolina, Chapel Hill) and Meaghan Morris (Lingnan
      University,
      Hong
      Kong) will each give a keynote address. Further, plenary speakers
      confirmed
      at this time are: Bryant Keith Alexander (California State
      University,
      Los
      Angeles), CL Cole (University of Illinois), Lauren Berlant
      (University
      of
      Chicago), Christopher Dunbar (Michigan State University), Henry Giroux
      (Pennsylvania State University), Peter McLaren (University of
      California,
      Los Angeles), Toby Miller (New York University), Paula Saukko
      (University of
      Exeter, United Kingdom), Keyan G. Tomaselli (University of Natal,
      Durban,
      South Africa), and Mary E. Weems (Cleveland State University). More
      plenary
      speakers will be added throughout the year.

      Six Spotlight Sessions have also been commissioned to cover specific
      topics
      such as Africa in a Global World, Neoliberalism & Democracy, and
      Sport
      &
      Cultural Studies.

      We will also have a Special Spotlight Session roundtable that
      reflects
      back
      on the landmark 1990 conference "Cultural Studies Now and in the
      Future," to
      be facilitated by that conference's organizers– Paula Treichler, Cary
      Nelson, and Lawrence Grossberg. Also scheduled is an interactive
      roundtable
      discussion on the various types of Cultural Studies methodologies
      currently
      in circulation, as we attempt to foster dialogue between and among
      these
      various sites of investigation.

      Session organizers should submit a 500-word abstract proposal and a
      50-word
      summary statement, including with it pertinent contact information
      and
      the
      area under which you think it would best fit (e.g., Advertising,
      Women's
      Studies, Critical Pedagogy, etc.). You may propose a session with a
      complete
      list of participants, or just send us the title and session abstract,
      so
      people can see it advertised and contact you with their paper
      proposals.
      Proposals can be submitted via email (MS-Word documents preferred) to
      cfp@... or by postal mail to:

      The mission of the Crossroads conference is to provide an open forum
      for all
      topics that interest the diverse international cultural studies
      community;
      generate lively, critical debate about contemporary society; foster
      contacts
      and the exchange ideas; and, ultimately, draw inspiration from each
      other.
      We encourage international participation from different countries,
      disciplines and cultural backgrounds, as well as from a wide range of
      research areas. In that way, the conference will also show where
      Cultural
      Studies is going next. For information about the history of the
      Crossroads

      Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA)

      "IDENTITIES AND ALTERITIES"

      Keynote speakers: Peter Hitchcock, Brian McHale, N.N.

      The Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA) invites proposals
      for
      an international conference on Identities and Alterities, to be held
      in
      Amsterdam on March 24-26, 2004.

      The conference will explore the concepts of identities and alterities,
      their interrelations and their relevance in current academic, public,
      and political discourse and practice. The usability of the concepts of
      identity, identities and identity politics is highly disputed, but it
      nevertheless functions as an important term for the self-definition,
      articulation and emancipation of individuals and groups. The concept
      of
      "identity" has been much-criticized for its presumed tendency to
      essentialism, where identity is primordial, given and determinate, as
      well as for its alleged positing of the subject as a complete,
      centered,
      being in complete control of his or her actions. However, as Paul
      Gilroy
      has pointed out, "we make our identities, but with inherited resources
      and not under the circumstances of our own choosing." In recent years,
      identity has ceased to be an individual, internal term for
      subjectivity,
      but has evolved into a collective term with an inextricable link to
      alterity, making it a highly useful tool for political and historical
      analyses. Identities are continually re-constructed, re-invented and
      re-interpreted in the light of political developments (such as
      decolonisation), in the light of interactions with the actual,
      external
      other (intersubjectivity), and in the light of our position in a
      postmodern discourse.

      We want to approach the concepts of identity and alterity from three
      different angles:

      • Postcolonialism: Formation as Representation/Representation as
      Formation

      This angle explores the concepts of identity and alterity in changing
      societies in terms of Stuart Hall's ideas on the politics of
      articulation and representation, and their tactical value for
      establishing identity in terms of shifting alliances and a continuous
      redefinition of boundaries. The very nature of the postcolonial
      necessitates an approach that takes its complexity into consideration.
      The colonial experience is diverse in space and time and should not be
      essentialised as a unifying force between different communities. As
      Richard Werbner puts it: "The postcolonial describes at once a
      presence
      and absence. The now in tension with the not-now, which creates a
      politicized reality."

      In the contemporary postcolonial context we are faced with numerous
      identity formations and representations. The question arises whether
      and
      how these can be systematically accounted for. How do we deal with
      identity formations that are "open-ended, productive and fraught with
      ambivalence" (James Clifford), yet constitute and represent
      communities
      with regard to cultural politics and global economies? And if identity
      is dependent on history and culture, what are the effects of
      colonization and decolonization on its conceptualization? Can
      indigenous
      identities transcend colonial disruptions in terms of a shared past?
      In
      what way can a non-essentialist theory of identity engage with the
      reality of conservative manifestations of identity politics?


      • Intersubjectivity: Identities in-between self and other

      We want to explore how identities are established and re-established
      in
      and through intersubjectivity, in and through relations between self
      and
      other, both individual and collective. The empirical, external other
      emerges as a crucial force in relation to subjectivity, embodiment and
      identity in the work of Mikhail Bakhtin and in Peter Hitchcock's
      elaboration of Bakhtin's concept of exotopy, which posits "outsideness
      as a form of affirmative alienation." Similar priority to the other
      as
      a
      positive force has been given in various recent psychoanalytic
      approaches (Jean Laplanche, Kaja Silverman, Jessica Benjamin).

      Questions we want to raise are: Can there be a subject or self without
      the other? Is there identity without alterity (without difference,
      otherness, the other)? In which ways can the other form and reform the
      self, both in line with and contrary to dominant cultural
      representations? What role do language, vision, the body, space-time,
      and translation play in the process of establishing identities
      in-between self and other? How can we formulate an ethics or politics
      of
      intersubjectivity? How do we conceptualize intersubjectivity on the
      collective level of social or political groups and/or in relation to
      postcolonialism and transnationalism?


      • Postmodernism: after and beyond the "death of the subject"

      Postmodernism, understood as a discourse (Brian McHale), is
      preoccupied
      less with the formation of identities than with their fragmentation
      and
      ultimately, dissolution. However, the talk about the "death of the
      subject" has by now grown somewhat stale and it also cannot account
      for
      those individuals and groups who are not granted identity and
      subjectivity in the first place. The third panel will therefore raise
      the following question: how can we theorize the identity of
      individuals
      and groups within a postmodernist discourse, but in such a way that
      they
      retain or gain agency?

      Postmodern theories have to a large extent been preoccupied with the
      epistemology of subjectivity as it had already been envisioned in
      German
      idealism, and have neglected the active and narrative processes
      involved
      in identity formation. We will therefore consider what role the
      performative and performativity (Mieke Bal) play in producing
      identities
      and alterities. It is in this context that the concept of alterity can
      develop its full analytic potential, because it allows for an
      intersubjective interplay between real, empirical groups and
      individuals. Questions to be asked include: what is the relation
      between
      identity and alterity, between self and other in postmodernist
      discourses, artworks and political practices? How are identities and
      alterities produced, performed, and challenged?


      Participants should outline what conception(s) of identities and/or
      alterities they are proposing, as well as their theoretical,
      political,
      practical or cultural relevance. The concepts may be addressed
      together
      or separately and they may be correlated with cultural objects such as
      film, artworks, television, literature, photography, music, museums,
      scientific objects/practices, religious objects/practices, etc.

      This conference is the latest in a series of ASCA graduate conferences
      and is inspired by the Theory Seminar organized by Mieke Bal in
      2002-2003 on "How to do Cultural Analysis." Participants will be
      expected to explain how their work connects to the practice of
      cultural
      analysis. Papers should aim to establish a dialogue between theory and
      cultural objects, asking not only what the theory says about the
      object,
      but also what the object says about the theory, how it prompts
      theoretical reformulations - what Mieke Bal calls "letting the object
      speak back."

      Please send your one-page proposal, accompanied by a short CV, by
      October 1st 2003. Proposals will be selected according to their
      relevance to the topics of the conference.

      The workshop format of the conference is designed to stimulate the
      discussion in the panels. Participants will be asked to send the final
      version of their papers (4000 word maximum) by January 25th, 2004. A
      reader will be prepared for each of the panels, which will be
      circulated
      before the conference.

      Instead of "reading" their papers at the conference, participants will
      be asked to give a 15-minute presentation on their work, connecting
      their paper to the other papers in their panel and to the overall
      concerns of the conference.

      NEWS FLASH! -- HOUSE APPROPRIATION RECOMMENDATIONS -- DISAPPOINTING
      On 25 June 2003, the House Appropriations Committee recommended $175.5
      billion be allocated in FY 2004 for five government departments:
      Agriculture, Labor, Education, Health and Human Services, and
      Interior. The Committee also recommended spending levels for dozens
      of
      smaller "related" agencies including the National Endowment for the
      Humanities (NEH). The House gave the NEH only a $10 million increase
      -- not the $25 million advocated by the Administration for the "We the
      People" initiative. Also, the Department of Education "Teaching
      American History" grants level was pegged at $50 million -- half of
      the
      amount requested by the administration. Democrats argued that the
      appropriation recommendations fell well short of what was promised and
      proposed by the President in his funding request, especially in the
      President's "No Child Left Behind" plan. The combined funding includes
      an overall increase of $5 billion, or 3%, over FY 2003 levels. Watch
      for the next NCH WASHINGTON UPDATE for a more detailed report on the
      funding recommendations.

      1. SENATOR ALEXANDER'S "AMERICAN HISTORY AND CIVICS EDUCATION" BILL
      PASSES SENATE
      On 20 June 2003, the American History and Civics Education Act passed
      the Senate by a vote of 90-0. Introduced in March 2003 by Senator
      Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and (by the time the legislation passed)
      co-sponsored by 36 of his colleagues, the bill (S.504) creates summer
      residential academies for teachers and students. The bill also
      establishes a new National Alliance of Teachers of American History
      and
      Civics.

      According to Alexander, "This legislation will help put the teaching
      of
      American history and civics back in its rightful place in our schools,
      so our children can grow up learning what it means to be an
      American." "When our values are under attack," he said, "we need to
      understand clearly what those values are. And second, we should
      understand what unites us as Americans."

      The legislation reflects the underlying philosophies embodied in the
      National Endowment for the Humanities' (NEH) "We the People"
      initiative
      and the Department of Education's "Teaching American History" grant
      program, in that it focuses on what Alexander characterizes as the
      teaching of "the traditional kind" of history -- "the study of the key
      persons, the key events, the key ideas, and the key documents that
      shape the institutions and democratic heritage" of the United States.

      The floor statements of Senate supporters, the legislation itself, and
      the accompanying Senate report (S. Rept. 108-71) collectively provide
      a
      pretty clear picture of what Congress hopes to accomplish by enacting
      this legislation. The bill authorizes $7 million in each fiscal year
      from 2004-2007 for pilot program grants to conduct up to 12 two-week
      long summertime Presidential Academies for Teachers of American
      History
      and Civics. Some $14 million a year is also authorized to conduct up
      to 12 four week-long summer Congressional Academies for Students of
      American History and Civics. The grants could span a two year period,
      after which an educational institution could re-apply for a second
      two-year grant. The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) would
      award the grants after being subjected to a peer-review process. The
      program would be approved for four years and it would require
      reauthorization should Congress opt to continue or expand it beyond
      2008.

      Senate report helps clarify the objectives of the legislation. The
      legislation is designed "to inspire better teaching and more learning
      of the key events, documents, persons and ideas that shaped the
      institutions and democratic heritage of the United States" with
      educational programs that "will enhance students' and teachers'
      content
      knowledge." To this end, the sponsors want the grant administrator
      (the NEH) to "focus on content knowledge of American History" with a
      special emphasis on "the first motto of our Nation, E Pluribus
      Unum." Grantees would be expected to devise programs that emphasize
      the general theme of "unity amidst variety and diversity." Report
      language also states the NEH "should try to attain geographic
      diversity" in the selection of grantees.

      It is interesting to note that governmental entities such as the
      Library of Congress, the National Park Service, and public libraries
      are specifically mentioned as "examples" of the types of entities
      that
      would be "considered eligible potential recipients of grants." While
      some federal grant programs prohibit monies being allocated to other
      federal agencies, this limitation does not exist in this legislation,
      raising some question whether the program conceivable could be used as
      a "pass-through" for other existing ongoing history-related education
      programs being sponsored by sister federal agencies. For the purposes
      of the legislation, however, in addition to the aforementioned federal
      agencies, an "educational institution" is also defined to mean "an
      institution of higher education...a nonprofit educational institution,
      library or research center" and also includes a "consortium of
      entities."

      Alexander's legislation also establishes a National Alliance of
      Teachers of American History and Civics and authorizes up to $12
      million to establish and operate the new alliance over a three-year
      period. Each year one or more national grants would be made to
      facilitate the sharing of ideas among teachers and encourage "best
      practices" in the teaching of American history and civics. The
      Alliance would be modeled after an alliance the National Geographic
      Society established during the 1980s to help put geography back into
      the American school curriculum.

      The creation such an alliance is by no means a new idea and several
      existing organizations and institutions already do much of what is
      envisioned in the Alexander bill. For example, the National Council
      for History Education, the National Council for the Social Sciences,
      and an H-net listserv all focus to one degree or another on
      "facilitating the sharing of ideas among teachers of American
      history...and encourage best practices." Similar organizations exist
      and seek to attain similar objectives for the teaching of civics.
      What
      is new in the Alexander bill is that the Senator envisions bringing
      these two social studies disciplines together under the umbrella of a
      larger teacher alliance.

      While the bill authorizes up to $25 million each year for the pilot
      program grants, the bill does not specify from which department or
      agency budget the appropriations would come. In theory the funds
      could
      be new monies, though most insiders believe that given the tight
      fiscal
      environment and restricted budget allocations, the funding for the
      program would probably be drawn from existing education or
      history-related programs.

      Privately, some history watchers are beginning to express concern
      about
      rumors relating to the funding of the Alexander bill and the current
      effort by Republicans in the House to "fast-track" the passage of this
      bill. In the House, the legislation is being shepherded by
      Representative Roger Wicker (R-MS) whose legislation (HR 1078) is the
      House companion to the Alexander bill; Wicker's bill has over 160
      co-sponsors. The Republican leadership in the House is seeking to
      bypass House hearings entirely and wants to place the Alexander bill
      on
      the unanimous consent calendar thus insuring rapid passage and thereby
      increasing the likelihood of starting the flow of funds out of the FY
      2004 appropriation cycle.

      Enactment of the Alexander bill, however, creates an awkward situation
      for the NEH. Concern has been raised that the bill creates a bad
      precedent. Alexander's legislation in essence is a history program
      "earmark" and the NEH traditionally has not been subjected to such
      funding restrictions. Over the years, NEH supporters have shied away
      from such earmarks for fear that once a precedent is established, in
      the future other members of Congress may try to earmark funds thereby
      shortchanging the NEH primary mission and programs.

      There is also some concern over the potential impact that the $25
      million authorization could have on the on the FY 2004 NEH "We the
      People" program appropriation. With the Republican controlled House
      only appropriating $10 million of the President's $25 million request,
      and because the funding level for the NEH has not been addressed by
      the
      Senate, the question emerges: what impact would the funding for the
      Alexander program have on the "We the People" program in the Senate
      and/or when the bill comes to conference? Some fear that certain
      members of Congress may want to pull the $25 million from
      the "Teaching
      American History" (TAH) grant program currently funded at $100 million
      by the DOE and turn some of that money over to the NEH to use to
      administer the Alexander bill. The House recently recommended an
      appropriation of only $50 million -- half of what the Administration
      requested (see related story above) for the "Teaching American
      History"
      program -- and the fear is that the Senate may acquiesce to a lower
      funding level for the TAH program provided that funds are made
      available for the Alexander bill. This in turn would impact the
      grant
      funding levels available for the LEAs (local education agencies) that
      currently are the prime beneficiaries of the TAH grants. Senator Byrd,
      as the Ranking minority member on the Senate Appropriations Committee
      and the key sponsor of the so-called "Byrd grants," is not expected to
      be predisposed to this type of arrangement though he may welcome an
      additional $25 million being added to his $100 million to fund the
      Alexander bill.

      2. ORGANIZATIONS FILE AMICUS BRIEF IN SUPPORT OF SCHRECKER FOIA SUIT
      On 24 June 2003, the National Coalition for History, along with the
      American Historical Association, the American Studies Association, the
      Association for Documentary Editing, the Organization of American
      Historians, the Society of American Historians, and several other
      groups, filed an Amicus brief in the case Schrecker v. U.S. Department
      of Justice. The brief supports history professor Ellen Schrecker, of
      Yeshiva University who is the plaintiff/appellant in an action
      against
      the U.S. Department of Justice. The case is being heard in the DC
      Circuit Court of Appeals.

      The case centers on a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made
      by
      Professor Schrecker to the Department of Justice for information on
      individuals investigated by the FBI during the McCarthy era. The
      Bureau withheld names from those files asserting the personal privacy
      exemption. The key issue is whether the names should be released, and
      if the privacy concerns have expired or diminished over time and due
      to
      the probable death of the anonymous persons.

      The brief contains several main points supportive of the
      appellant. The first is that the FBI "improperly presumes the
      individuals in 50-year old records are still alive" and that the FBI
      did not take an active approach to determining the status of the
      individuals. Secondly, the brief argues that "the department's
      practice of withholding names unless there is proof an individual is
      dead or was born more than 100 years ago has no basis" in law.

      Professor Schrecker's case is expected to be argued sometime in the
      Fall.

      3. IRAQ UPDATE
      As previously reported in this publication, in the weeks following the
      Iraq war, there was a general confusion over the status of many of the
      country's antiquities. Early estimates placed the lost items in the
      hundreds of thousands, and the world mobilized to recover
      them. However, more recent reports out of Iraq indicate that only
      some
      33 priceless display items remain unaccounted for though thousands of
      items from research collections remain missing.

      The misunderstanding over the numerical losses arose when Donny
      George,
      the director general of research and study for the Iraqi State Board
      of
      Antiquities, was misquoted. "I said there were 170,000 pieces in the
      entire museum collection," he said, "not 170,000 pieces stolen=85that
      would be every single object we have!" George also corrected a report
      issued by U.S. Investigators from the Customs Service and the State
      Department that listed 47 priceless items as missing.

      Most reports from agencies acknowledge that 33 display hall museum
      pieces were taken, and they also confirm the theft of at least 6,000
      pieces from various storerooms. On 20 June, University of Chicago
      archeologist McGuire Gibson stated "like any museum, the display
      collection is an iceberg. Because this is archeological museum,
      there's a huge amount of stuff that's important to the sites and
      researchers, but never goes on display." The items that were not on
      display were the ones believed to have been plundered.

      Over the last few weeks, items have begun to be returned to Iraqi
      museums. Museum staff, who had taken some of them home for
      safekeeping
      also returned some antiquities. Art historian John Russell, an Iraq
      expert at Boston's Massachusetts College of Art, visited Iraq in
      mid-May with a UNESCO team. "You remember when everybody said the
      looting was an inside job," he [said]. "Well, there was an inside
      job,
      except the staff did exactly what they were supposed to do." Two
      vaults were subsequently discovered below the Central Bank of Iraq,
      one
      of which had housed the Treasures of Nimrud since the first Gulf War,
      and the second that was filled with artifacts weeks before the Second
      Gulf War.

      Other items, such as the Warka vase, a three-foot high, 5,000 year-old
      ritual vase, have been returned by anonymous civilians. Iraqi
      officials have adopted a "don't ask, don't tell" policy, one that has
      prompted the return of several important artifacts.

      Another facet of the antiquities looting in Iraq centers on the
      country's many archeological sites. Some scholars believe that the
      theft of archeological objects is more pressing and serious than the
      museum thefts. "These sites have been ripped from the ground in the
      same way you tear pages of history," said Henry T. Wright, an
      anthropologist at the University of Michigan and the leader of a group
      of American experts in Iraq. As of 12 June, of the 19 sites the team
      of experts visited, 13 showed evidence of serious looting, and 10 with
      serious damage. The looting has affected places such as Nimrud,
      Sennacherib in Nineveh, Dahaileh, Girsu, and Larsa, all archeological
      sites from ancient Mesopotamia.


      4. LEGISLATIVE UPDATE: BILLS PASSED, BILLS INTRODUCED
      Bills Passed:
      Reconstruction Theme Study: On 16 June 2003, by unanimous voice vote,
      the Senate passed legislation (S. 500), directing the Secretary of the
      Interior to study certain sites in Beaufort County, South Carolina,
      relating to the Reconstruction Era. An appropriation to fund the
      study
      is authorized pending enactment of this authorization. The bill will
      now be considered in the House.

      McLoughlin House: On 16 June 2003, the Senate passed legislation (HR
      733) authorizing the Secretary of the Interior to acquire the
      McLoughlin House National Historic Site in Oregon City, Oregon, and to
      administer the site as a unit of the National Park System. A similar
      bill has passed the House; The Senate version was passed in an amended
      form and called for the McLoughlin House to be included as part of the
      Fort Vancouver Historic Site.

      Bills Introduced:
      On 4 June 2003, by Rep. Virgil H. Goode (R-VA), legislation (HR 2327)
      to amend the National Trails System to extend the Lewis and Clark
      National Historic Trail to include additional sites associated with
      the
      preparation or return phase of the expedition; to the House
      Subcommittee on National Parks, Recreation, and Public Lands for
      action.

      On 11 June 2003, by Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), legislation (S
      1241) to establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site in the
      state
      of New York, and for other purposes; to the Senate Committee on Energy
      and Natural Resources for action.

      On 12 June 2003, by Rep. John L. Mica (R-FL), legislation (HR 2457) to
      authorize funds for an educational center for the Castillo de San
      Marcos National Monument, and for other purposes; to the House
      Subcommittee on National Parks, Recreation, and Public Lands.

      On 12 June2003, by Rep. Richard Baker (R-LA), legislation (HR 2449) to
      establish a commission to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the
      American Civil War; to the House Committee on Government Reform.

      On 19 June 2003, by Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), legislation (S 1292)
      to establish a servitude and emancipation archival research
      clearinghouse in the National Archives; to the Senate Committee on
      Governmental Affairs.

      5. BITS AND BYTES
      Item #1 -- UCLA Film Archive: A joint project between IBM and the
      Film and Television Archive at the University of California at Los
      Angeles will preserve more than 27 million feet of newsreel
      footage. The footage, which disintegrates with age, will be available
      online for researchers, as well as the general public. "Our work with
      IBM will make the moving-image history of the 20th Century available
      and accessible to the public," says James Friedman, project leader for
      the UCLA Film and Television Archive. The collection is comprised of
      newsreel footage from 1917 to 1971, and includes Lindbergh crossing
      the
      Atlantic, Gregarin's maiden space voyage, and the Great Depression.

      Item # 2 -- Senate Passes Rule Against "Stealing": On 24 June 2003,
      the Senate Rules Committee passed Senate Resolution 178 that seeks "to
      prohibit members of the Senate and other persons from removing
      historic
      objects from the Senate wing of the Capitol and Senate office
      buildings
      for personal use." The need for such a rule took many members of the
      upper house by surprise, and led some to ask how extensive the problem
      was. Trent Lott (R-MS) who chairs the committee answered by stating
      that as best he can tell, there was a 150 year history to such theft -
      -
      "over the years, they've taken everything...It just leaves." In
      addition to art and historic objects the resolution specifically bars
      senators from stealing exhibits and furniture.

      Item #3 -- Protect the Pledge Act: In response to the court case
      United States v. Newdow where the Ninth Circuit held that a school
      district's policy of teacher-led recitation of the Pledge of
      allegiance
      violates the First Amendment, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Jim
      Talent
      (R-MO) have introduced legislation (S. 1297) bypassing the
      jurisdiction
      of Federal courts involving cases and controversies relating to the
      Pledge of Allegiance. The "Protect the Pledge Act of 2003" seeks to
      prevent further encroachment by eliminating federal jurisdiction of
      claims that the recitation of the Pledge violates the First Amendment.
      Critics assert the Hatch bill is of questionable legality.

      6. ARTICLES OF INTEREST
      One article this week: Todd Wilkerson's "At Custer's Last Stand, a
      First Stand for Indians" (The Christian Science Monitor; 24 June 2003)
      reports that 127 years after the battle of the Little Bighorn, Native
      Americans will finally get a memorial honoring the Indians who died in
      the famous siege. For the article, tap into:
