112th Annual Conference - Riverside Convention Center, California
Friday, October 31 - Sunday, November 2, 2014
English Literature and Culture: 20th and 21st Century
Kevin Swafford, Bradley University
The 2014 Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Conference in Riverside, California (Oct. 31-Nov. 2, 2014) will focus, in part, on the theme of "Familiar Spirits"—the relation between the mundane and the paranormal, the everyday and the uncanny. Given the general theme of the conference, I am particularly interested in papers that consider the Uncanny (Freudian and beyond) in Modernist and Post-Modernist English prose.
