CFP: Disney and Its Worlds for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

From the Frankfurt School to contemporary cultural studies, the social ramifications of Disney movies and theme parks, and their cultural penumbra, have long provided rich terrain for critical scholarly analysis. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers that draw upon the rich canon of scholarship on Disney and engage with its cultural effects through critical theory, spatial or historical analysis, feminist methodologies, or close reading strategies are particularly encouraged. This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

This session will explore the intersection of film studies and history. We are looking for papers that explore filmic depictions of historical events, including motion pictures and television forms. Papers that foreground discussions of the accuracy, truthfulness, and ethics of filmic depiction, issues of historiography, and questions of the history of film-making itself are welcome. Since this year's conference theme also addresses sight, visuality, and ways of seeing, papers submitted that combine historical philosophies of film with the ontology of vision are also very welcome.

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.
