Games are structures of struggle, and the root of struggle comes from limitations of perspective: access to a particular vision that is restricted, either from the self or other. What does this emphasis on perspective enable games to do with and for its players, spectators, and player/spectators? This special session invites interdisciplinary research on games and gaming as tools (or mechanics) of perspective and vision.

CFP: The Visibility of Knowledge: Spanish Culture at the Council of Trent for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

The council of Trent marked a milestone for Spanish diplomats and Churchmen. What has been often perceived as a change of paradigm in the theological and political protocols, was also a site for the creation of knowledge. As Spanish diplomats and churchmen gathered at Trent with their pairs from all the continent, medical, literary and philosophical ideas traveled hundreds of miles across borders and seas -- in the form of adaptations from antiquity, illustrated codices from the New World or revolutionary texts. This panel aims at examining the ways in which the council fostered early modern science and the liberal arts. 

CFP: Conversations with the Past: Revising the Masters for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

Past poetic texts grant contemporary poets opportunities for re-viewing, re-stating, re-casting, re-structuring, and re-iterating ideas and emotions. From Raymond Queneau’s Exercises in Style to Paul Hoover’s Sonnet 56, poets re-state classic human concerns about life and death, joy and sorrow. “Conversations with the Past” invites both scholarly and poetic submissions. You may submit a proposal for an analysis of contemporary poets who have re-viewed and re-vised past masters using contemporary poetics, or, alternatively, you may submit a proposal for a creative reading of your own poetry that reviews and revises past masters using contemporary poetics (or some hybrid version of a poetry reading and analysis presentation).

In a time when many are thinking about building walls, we invite researchers interested in thinking and talking about the journey of (il)legal (im)migrants to explore the reasons why people decide to leave their country of origin to build a new life in a foreign country and/or to examine the lives and processes of those already living in a new land without having papers bestowing upon them the status of “citizens.” We welcome papers that focus on cultural products both in Spanish and English.

The panel will consider the social capital created by connecting non-traditional students with iconic 19th century American texts. What does it mean when a 1st generation Latina from Boyle Heights tells you that Maria Cummins' The Lamplighter is her favorite novel? What does it mean when a diverse group of first year students sees Walden as a tool for creating the educational experience they desire rather than one that is proscribed for them? What does it mean to teach Moby Dick to Dream Act students in the Age of the 45th?
