**********************************************************************************************************************************
I started the Tarot area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association (PCA/ACA) conference in 2005 (San Diego) with the help of James Aubrey, the area chair for Visual and Verbal Culture. The very first paper in the area was Carol Matthews's "At the Market Place of Identity: Tarot Choice and Value Fulfillment." This paper appears in revised form, along with a number of others, in the Tarot in Culture anthology soon to be published by the Association for Tarot Studies (Victoria, Aus.)
