Call for Papers: Asian Literature Session at PAMLA 2017

Asian Literature Session at PAMLA 2017
Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12, 2017
Chaminade University of Honolulu

The Asian Literature 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 dealing with “Asia” and “literature” broadly conceived, from a wide range of historical periods. While this year’s special sessions theme is “The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing”, the Asian Literature session aims to put in conversation papers that analyze issues of power and ideology more generally.

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

Please know that PAMLA accepts individual papers rather than organized panels. You can submit proposals to up to three different sessions, although each proposal must be distinct, and you can ultimately present only one paper at the conference. PAMLA is a friendly and welcoming conference that presents a nice opportunity for getting to know scholars working in different fields.
