CFP PAMLA Special Session - Veterans Studies

updated: 
Monday, April 13, 2020 - 2:47pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. This special panel session invites papers that explore any aspect of military service in literature, including those that reflect the conference theme of “City of God, City of Destruction.” Outside the trauma of military existence is the rich sense of community that exists in the brotherhood of service to one’s country. Military bases are cities unto their own. They exist as denizens of destruction. This session invites papers that explore the many facets of military experience exhibited in literature, theater, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans.

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.
