While islands of the Pacific figure prominently in the Western imagination, literary and cultural productions of Oceania are generally elided in Humanities scholarship of the continental U.S. Since its inception in 2008, PAMLA's standing session on "Oceanic Literatures and Cultures" has featured papers on indigenous, settler, and touristic artists of the Pacific as well as mass/popular cultural phenomena in and about Hawai'i and other "insular" locales. This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

The Handbook to Horror Literature: Select Chapters Needed

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Most handbooks on the subject of horror focus specifically on film, whereas books on the literary manifestations of horror tend to be bound to the idea of the “Gothic.” The current field of Gothic studies grows out of the study of Romanticism, and refers specifically to a late eighteenth-century genre, but has also come to denote a critical approach to literature, film, and culture, drawing on psychoanalysis, post structural criticism, feminist and queer theory. These perspectives are all to be included here, but the book responds to a growing sense that “horror” is itself a worthwhile focus of analysis.

This panel intends to examine the works of Muslim American poets, novelists, jazz musicians, punks, hip hop artists, mipsters, filmmakers, and visual artists. Muslims are woven into the American fabric, from the generations of Moorish slaves accompanying the conquistadors in the Southwest, enslaved West Africans such as those in the coastal Gullah communities, Arab laborers in the Midwest factories in the late 1800s, twentieth-century immigrants fueling the medical and technology sectors, to those currently displaced by wars and natural disasters.
