Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

Recent scholarship on the "archive" as well as that on "cultural memory" has focused on the role of language as both mechanism and metaphor. This session seeks to further purse these lines of investigation and find points of intersection by focusing on the revival of extinct or near-extinct languages as a type of archival reconstruction grounded in cultural memory. Papers are sought that explore how and why language revival movements occur in relation to issues of identity formation (both personal and communal) and the relationship of this phenomenon to the notion of cultural preservation vis-a-vi cultural memory and archive.

'I am Elizabeth Reegan and another day of my life is beginning' she said to herself. 'I am lying here in bed. I've been five weeks sick in bed, and there is no sign of me getting better. Though there's little pain, which is lucky, and the worst is fear and remorse and often the horrible meaninglessness of it all. Sometimes meaning and peace come but I lose them again, nothing in life is ever resolved once and for all.
- John McGahern, The Barracks (1963)

Panel CFP, ANZAMEMS 2017 - Mobility and Exchange in Medieval and Early Modern Afterlives

A multicultural and global world has triggered a widespread and increasing fascination with all aspects and processes related to mobility and exchange in the humanities and social sciences. Like many disciplines in the humanities, medieval and early modern studies is often challenged about its relevance in the contemporary world. One way to respond to these concerns is to engage not just with the historic medieval and early modern past but also with the various medievalisms and early modernisms in contemporary popular culture.
