Latinx Literature and Culture Session at PAMLA (Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association) Conference 2017

Friday, November 10 – Sunday, November 12, 2017

Chaminade University of Honolulu

The Latinx Literature and Culture standing session of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) is now accepting proposals for the organization’s 115th annual conference. The session welcomes proposals focused on Latinx literature and culture broadly conceived. While this year’s special conference theme is “The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing”, the Latinx Literature and Culture session aims to put in conversation papers that analyze issues of power and ideology more generally. However, gearing your abstract toward this conference theme is strongly encouraged. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

The proposal deadline is Monday, June 26, 2017. Please submit your proposal through the online form, which is available at the following URL:

Please know that PAMLA accepts individual papers rather than organized panels. You can submit up to three proposals to three different sessions, although each proposal must be distinct, and you can ultimately present only one paper at the conference. PAMLA is a congenial and welcoming forum that presents excellent opportunities for meeting with scholars formally and informally from in and outside of your respective fields of study.
