Special Panel: Religion in American Literature
2016 Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
Pasadena, CA; 11/11-11/13, 2016

This panel seeks to address how questions of faith have shaped cultural meanings in American literary history. In particular, it welcomes papers that examine the relationship between secularity and literary development in the United States. Some of the questions we will consider are: How did the growth in secularity influence the way American writers conceptualized faith and experienced transcendence? How did it influence the way they responded to suffering? How did they express the tension of living within a secular age? What are the expressions of transcendence within secular culture?

Specters of Asia: Reorienting the Image of Western Political Economy

This panel explores the role that the encounter with East Asian philosophical, political, and aesthetic traditions play in the development of modern European economic thought, from the proto-Classical theories of the Physiocrats up to the present. We are particularly interested in papers that seek to better grasp, through a genealogy of Western economic thought, its contemporary blindness vis a vis modes of affectivity originating from an East Asian context.

Topics might include but are not limited to:

Early Modern Trauma

Dr Erin Peters, University of Gloucestershire

The present-day term 'trauma' refers to a wound or a paradigmatic disruption that disorients an individual or a community with overwhelming fear and suffering. The term "trauma" certainly has modern-day connotations, most commonly associated with WW1 and Freud, and trauma theory has been heavily shaped by responses to modern catastrophes. Indeed, trauma is often seen as inherently linked to modernity. However, psychological trauma as a result of distressing or disturbing experiences is a human phenomenon that has been recorded across time and cultures as far back as records of warfare and disaster exist.
