New Directions in Holocaust Studies

The 2018 annual PAMLA (Pacific and Ancient Modern Language Association) conference will be held at Western Washington University (WWU) in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, from Friday, November 9 to Sunday, November 11. PAMLA is dedicated to the advancement and diffusion of knowledge of ancient and modern languages and literatures.


The Ray Wolpow Institute for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Crimes against Humanity at WWU is inviting panel submissions to its special session "New Directions in Holocaust Studies" that explores the transnational turn in Holocaust Studies from various inter- and transdisciplinary vantage points and theories. Papers are welcome that offer critical readings of representations in art, architecture (e.g. museums, memorial sites), film, literature, music, new media, television, and theater and that situate their analyses within local, national, and/or global contexts and comparative frameworks. 


Proposals should include a title, an approximate 500-word proposal, a 50-word abstract, and be submitted online by May 30, 2018.
