Good Afternoon!

I am pleased to announce a Call for Papers for my panel, "Literature and the Other Arts" for PAMLA 2022 which commences this Fall at UCLA.

Literature and the Other Arts
This session is open to any proposal that explores the intersection of literature and some other art - painting, music, film, and film adaptation among others. However, in accordance with the conference theme "Geographies of the Fantastic and the Quotidian," we welcome papers that explore the cross-sections between literature and the other arts in connection to issues of the urban, cityscapes, postmodern, noir, gothic, religious spaces or architecture; literature and other arts in relation to humanity in the context of extraordinary, exemplary, “out of this world” sorts of places, real and figurative; literature and other arts exploring spaces of the fantastic and the bizarre; or, conversely, literature and other arts depicting the lived and experienced environments of the banal and everyday, which identify connections between the sacred and the mundane. 

Deadline for submission is May 15. As Presiding Officer and Chair, I welcome your questions and look forward to what will surely be a unique, insightful session.

Thank You!

Most Sincerely,

Prof. Katy Simonian
