The changes in the job market and the difficulties for landing a tenure track academic position have been a game changer during the last five years. As many graduate programs in the country have decided to accept lesser students annually, others have devised innovative solutions and have highly engaged in training students beyond academia. This roundtable aims at opening a conversation about professional careers outside academia. The roundtable welcomes speakers who have experience working beyond academia and can guide students and peers towards a professional career path.

Theater, Diplomacy, and Politics

updated: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 2:46pm
PAMLA 117th Annual Conference, San Diego, Nov 14-17th, 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 8, 2019

This session aims at reflecting on the interrelation between theater, performance, diplomacy, and politics. Since theater became theater, plays and performances have reflected, reacted, rejected, denounced, and embraced political turmoil. This panel welcomes papers presenting an interdisciplinary or theoretically grounded analysis of the ways in which theater and/or theatrical audiences react to political turmoil and/or feed institutional discourses that endorse National politics. The multifarious nature of theater escapes unidirectional readings and categorizations: performers, directors, and the very nature of a performance's dialogic form often complicates the way in which jokes, comedy, and meaning are endorsed.

As a location on the western edge of the North American West, San Diego is an ideal location for discussions of cinema, drama, prose, and poetry of the region. This panel welcomes proposals that explore, problematize, and/or redefine the West as a construct that emerges throughout various forms of representation with particular interest in topics that deal with the conference theme of "Send In the Clowns." Proposals considering San Diego's particular regional languages and literatures, or proposals more generally addressing literature of the American West are welcome. This panel is the result of an exciting new affiliation between PAMLA and the Western Literature Association (WLA).

Reflexive Altered Spaces in the Anthropocene

updated: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 2:30pm
Dee Horne/PAMLA conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

Increasing disparities of wealth, inequalities, and unfairness have led to social protests, civil wars, and other forms of unrest in many parts of the world. Extreme climate changes causing droughts, forest fires, floods, hurricanes, and other disasters strain already limited and finite resources and have led to social unrest and to displacement and migration of citizens in search of basic necessities: food, water, shelter. Other forces and events have disrupted the stability of Earth’s systems throughout deep time, but the Anthropocene is the only age distinguished by at least the opportunity for human self-awareness and reflexivity regarding the agency of change.
