Abstracts are being welcomed for a proposed collection examining the toy as hero. Toys, a celebrated part of childhood and often key figures in children's imaginative play, have a fantastic history of heroism in print and on film. Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.

Friday, March 20, 2015 - 4:21pm
2015 Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Portland, Oregon

This panel seeks to address how questions of faith have shaped cultural meanings in American literary history. In particular, it welcomes papers that examine the relationship between suffering and religious identity. Some of the questions we will consider are: how do literary texts represent the connection between suffering and faith? How did the growth in secularity influence the way American writers conceptualized and responded to suffering? Do religious and non-religious writers come to terms with human suffering in different ways?
