Nandan Choksi/PAMLA (Pacific, Ancient, & Modern Language Association)

This panel seeks to explore theoretical approaches to ancient and/or modern texts. Proposals that deal with a single genre, such as poetry or prose or drama, are acceptable. However, scholars are also encouraged to explore texts that cross traditional boundaries and examine relations between, for instance, the Iliad and the Odyssey on the one hand and the Lord of the Rings novels on the other. Similarly, while read-and-lecture presentations are acceptable, scholars are encouraged to use audio-visuals to support their arguments.

But what sort of sense is constitutive of the everydayness? Surely this sense includes not sense so much as sensuousness, . . . a knowledge that lies as much in the objects and spaces of observation as in the body and mind of the observer.
– Michael Taussig, "Tactility and Distraction"

As the citizen of the nation becomes the consumer of the multinational corporation, our roles as inhabitants of space become increasingly complicated. Our literature, our faith, our bodies all speak to the different ways that we find to occupy the shifting territories of the postmodern landscape. Looking both to the past and future can help us to discover the real and imagined ways our cultures can develop in more richly and defined ways.

"Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different waters flow."

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos' wisdom remains salient. None would deny that there are dominant movements and perspectives; yet, every scholar must admit that the topography of the discipline is in continual flux. Each year generates a new approach and a new trend – a new branch from the old.

Andrew Warren

I will be chairing a panel on Ancient-Modern Relations at November's Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association's conference in San Francisco. The conference tends to be wide-ranging, so work on anything related to the topic is welcome. Of particular interest are issues related to: Romanticism, the C19, and Modernism; "Orientalism" and/in the Ancient World; Postcolonial approaches to and definitions of the "Ancient"; and Critical Theory's debt to Ancient Philosophy.

But again, this is a broadly defined panel, and all proposals dealing with Ancient and Modern Relations are welcome.

The conference dates are November 6-7, 2009, in San Francisco.
