Shooting during a live tele show


In the seventies (1970s) a female TV journalist/presenter in the USA shot
herself during a live show. I was wondering if some one can lead me to more
information about the incident.

Nebula: Generalist/All Topics (8/22/05; online publication, issue #6)

Nebula invites readers to peruse its latest issue, Nebula 
2.2, which is now online with unrestricted access at .  You might also like to view our 
archives as well as the Special Project CFP, both of which 
are available through the website.  We now invite 
submissions for Nebula 2.3.  Please submit your intended 
contribution by August 22, 2005 to be considered for 
inclusion in this issue. 

Nebula is an online academic periodical which is interested 
in all things intellectual with the intention of providing a 
platform for interdisciplinary reading.  Unlike other 
academic periodicals, Nebula is not limited to one Faculty 
or subject.  We accept academic articles from any discipline 
provided that these are written in non-specialist language 
and in a manner that appeals to a broad audience.  Nebula 
also publishes intellectual writings that may not 
necessarily meet the generic conventions of an academic 
article.  In addition, we encourage academics and 
intellectuals to participate in a public debate as regards 
world politics.  We particularly welcome submissions of a 
marginal or “against the grain” nature and those that 
heavily interrogate popular political ideologies in a sound 
and well-evidenced manner.  Writings of high calibre that 
are particularly underrepresented in other academic 
periodicals are most welcome for consideration.  Nebula also 
publishes literary and art works and is willing to consider 
any (graphic, cartoon etc.) material, which can be published 
on the world wide web.  Submissions intended for Nebula are 
not limited by a particular house style; we simply ask that

Re: newscaster suicide

Hi Subhash, 

The newscaster was Chris Chubbuck...It took place July 15, 
1974 at 9:38 AM on her show Suncoast Digest. Her last words 
were: "In keeping with Channel 40's policy of bringing you 
the latest in blood and guts in living color, you are going 
to see another first -- attempted suicide." 

I don't know what kind of information you're looking for, 
but apparently there was a 3-page article by Sally Quinn in 
the August 4, 1974 edition of the Washington Post. 

All of this info I got from an internet search.

CFP: Psychoanalysis, Community and 20th Century American Literature (7/1/05; APSC, 11/4/05-11/6/05)

(with apologies for cross-postings)

Proposal for Panel

For The Association for the Psychoanalysis of Culture and Society

November 4-6, 2005 at Rutgers University

Plenary Speakers: Willy Apollon and Eric Santner

Douglas Dowland, The University of Iowa, Panel Chair

What foundational psychoanalytic tensions are wrought out in the 
representation of community in literature?  This panel seeks examples of 
how psychoanalytic theory and practice illuminates representations of 
communities in modern and contemporary American literature.  Examples from 
all genres of literature, including canonical and non-canonical texts, will 
be considered.  A variety of approaches, including orthodox and unorthodox 
psychoanalytic practices, are appreciated.

Paper proposals should consider how tensions in communities are 
historically and politically influenced and how these tensions may be 
mitigated by the history and politics of psychoanalysis as practiced 
concurrently in America.  In other words, how does "psychoanalysis" 
redefine "community" and how does "community" demand provide a necessary 
contour of psychoanalytic practice?

Papers of a meta-commentary nature will also be considered, including how

Re: Tourism & Terrorism

Dear List

A Ph.D. student of mine is currently working on the relationship between 
tourism and terrorism, in particular what might be said about the 
tourist and terrorist as migratory/destructive/culturally 
suspect/unsanctioned identities.  Can anyone suggest some useful 
readings for her, particularly in the area of recent work? If you email 
suggestions to me personally, rather than the list as a whole, I promise 
I will in turn send the list a summarising account of suggestions for 
posterity's archival sake.

Many thanks

Melissa Hardie.
