Trauma Theory in/and Indigenous Literatures

    Trauma is a notoriously slippery concept to identify and comprehend, however, many theorists—-most notably Cathy Caruth in Unclaimed Experience—have argued that literature provides a means of representing and of ‘working-through’ experiences which otherwise have gone “unclaimed.” Absent from literary trauma theories, such as Caruth’s, however, is a consideration of the euro-centric core of theories of trauma. This absence can be attributed to the origins of literary trauma theory that emerged primarily out of Freudian psychoanalytic psychology and/or the deconstructive philosophy of the Yale School and Paul de Man.

Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human

Abstracts and articles are sought for an edited collection to be entitled Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human. Ecocriticism examines literary and cultural representations of the natural environment and diverse life forms, often in the context of broader political, economic, and social issues and often with an ethical commitment to sustainability and environmental justice. In this context, ecocritical work may interrogate how texts treat anthropocentrism, or the centralization of humans’ perspectives, needs, and experiences over those of other beings.

PAMLA 2019- Travel and Literature session: 20th and 21st century travel writing

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

The travel and literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey and mobility through a literary lens, with a special interest in 20th- 21st century travel writing.

We are particularly interested in papers that take into consideration travel writing by authors better known for other forms of writing (novelists, poets, philosophers, essayists) and for whom travel, and travel writing, serve as a means to veer from their habitual modes of writing and allow them to experiment with another form (Baudrillard’s Cool memories, Barthes’ Empire of signs, Leiris’ Phantom Africa are examples of travel narratives of interest).

Topics may include:

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).
