We invite paper submissions on Postcolonial Literatures, a standing session of the annual Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association conference. The 2016 PAMLA Conference will be held at the Westin Pasadena from Friday, November 11 to Sunday, November 13.
This year's theme is "Archives, Libraries, Properties." However, papers on topics related to postcolonial literary studies (such as resistance, mimicry, hybridity, nationalism, transnationalism/diaspora, neo-colonialism/imperialism, decolonization/de-imperialization) are welcome.

We are currently seeking original essays for "Slow Down," a collection of articles written by arts and humanities scholars across disciplines, which together argue that higher education has been compromised by its uncritical acceptance of our culture's standards of productivity, busyness, and speed. Our project is inspired by the slow movement, which was made popular by Carlo Petrini's Slow Food movement and has since been adopted by many others concerned about the quality of life in a fast world.
