updated:

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

The travel and literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey and mobility through a literary lens, with a special interest in 20th- 21st century travel writing.

We are particularly interested in papers that take into consideration travel writing by authors better known for other forms of writing (novelists, poets, philosophers, essayists) and for whom travel, and travel writing, serve as a means to veer from their habitual modes of writing and allow them to experiment with another form (Baudrillard’s Cool memories, Barthes’ Empire of signs, Leiris’ Phantom Africa are examples of travel narratives of interest).

Topics may include:

T. S. Eliot: A Century Later

Joseph Conrad and Ethics seeks essays (6000 to 8000 words) that deal with ethics in Conrad’s fiction. 

Since Aristotle's Ethics and Plato’s The Republic, ethics has been a fundamental concern throughout European intellectual history. Over the last three decades, in particular, there has been a growing interest in ethics in the social sciences and humanities, inspired by Emmanuel Levinas, Jacques Derrida, and Jürgen Habermas, to name a few. Ethics is central to Joseph Conrad’s works. It is conveyed both through his thematic concerns and narrative techniques. However, this prominent topic has not yet received the attention it deserves.
