Call for Papers: The Global South (Fall 2016)
Theme: Globalizing the Province
Guest Editor: Shirley Lau Wong
According to the OED, the word tourism enters the English lexicon at the dawn of the nineteenth century, thus institutionalizing the notion that travel is a necessary component of personal development. As crowds of earnest bourgeois travelers displaced the solitary young aristocrat on the Grand Tour a vast body of literature concerned with both mundane and exalted facets of foreign places cropped up to fulfill a new set of needs. Owing to the diversity of places to which individuals traveled and the many different reasons for doing so, these needs were diverse and multiform.

This panel seeks papers that consider what it might mean to think about poetics in relation to queer studies—specifically scholars who are working with queer studies in conjunction with historical poetics, the history of poetic criticism, and lyric theory. Rather than papers that read poetry by queer writers or read queerness in poetry, this panel is looking for work that thinks more about what it means to write poetry as a queer person, about how that poetry circulates in the world, and how that poetry is read and received. Keeping with the conference theme, papers that think about poetics in relation to queer questions of time, temporality and history are particularly encouraged.
Submissions are welcomed for the Romanticism panel at the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Assocation (PAMLA) conference this November 6-8 in Portland, Oregon. In keeping with the panel's status as a standing, annual session, all topics and approaches are welcome.
Proposals should be sent through the online submission system by May 15, 2015: http://www.pamla.org/2015.
