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).

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.

Margaret Atwood is a world-renowned writer who has always identified herself specifically as a Canadian writer, even at a time when it was argued (even within Canada) that Canadian literature didn't exist.  Her identity as a Canadian is very important to her but, over the course of her career, her work reveals a progression to a more global viewpoint.  Atwood's earlier work invites an examination primarily of internal borders (between Canadian provinces, between urban and natural spaces and in the psychic spaces of her characters) where her later work more obviously offers opportunities to examine intersections of transnational spaces.

Out with the Clones, In with the Clowns: Teaching for the Post-Anthropocene

Analyzing the Anthropocene, or the “Age of Man,” poses unique challenges for the classroom context. How does one “teach” the Anthropocene? How might we use the lenses of Rob Nixon’s “slow violence” or Christian Parenti’s “catastrophic convergence” to add a critical dimension to current teaching? Can we envision ways to work around administrative and standardizing obstacles – and even transcend that physical and ideological place we call classroom? This is essential, for, as Paulo Freire asserts, “critical consciousness is brought about not through an intellectual effort alone, but through praxis – through the authentic union of action and reflection.”
