Westerns and the West

 

Westerns and the West topics have a wide range, including novels, films, and television series to historical, ethnic and racial, musical, and gender studies of the Old West.  Panelists have also included contemporary themes, such as studying the environment of the modern ranches or exploring other film subgenres as outgrowths of the Western.  Generally, the Westerns panels as a whole reflect a balanced study of fact and fiction, a variety of genres, and inclusion of diverse cultures populating the frontier.
