The children's literature session of PAMLA 2015 invites your proposal on any theme or topic of study pertaining to children's literature and culture. We welcome engaging, provocative analyses of children's literature and texts (including graphic novels, comic books, video games, and/or films). Proposals attending to the conference theme "Literature and Time" are especially welcome.

The 2015 PAMLA conference special topic, "Literature and Time," is an invitation to reflect on the complex temporalities that inhere in the acts of reading and writing literature. We invite paper proposals that engage with the topic of literary temporalities, children, and children's literature in a variety of ways.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

CounterText: A Journal for the Study of the Post-Literary -- Rolling CFP

CounterText; Edinburgh University Press

CounterText is uniquely centred on the study of literature and its 21st-century extensions. Are the broader resonances of the literary being overtaken in the drifts towards image cultures, digital spaces, globalisation and technoscientific advances? For CounterText, the post-literary is the domain in which any artefact that might have some claim on the literary appears. However, the post-literary domain also allows for vital and challenging migrations and mutations of the literary. Such artefacts might be called 'countertextual'. The countertextual is strategic, metamorphic and revelatory of the charged evolutions and radical transformations of the literary today.

Just over a decade ago, Dana Phillips (in)famously attacked ecocritics for uncritically borrowing terms and ideas from the discipline of ecology, which, he argued, is itself a "less than fully coherent field with a very checked past and fairly uncertain future." While controversial, Phillips's critique sparked important discussions about ecocriticism's methodology, especially its claim to interdisciplinarity. So-called "second wave" ecocritics reexamined the field's founding assumptions; a period of self-assessment propelled ecocriticism toward a more rigorous engagement with the sciences as well as the humanities.

Etymologically, vulnerability refers to a "wound" (from the Latin vulnus, vulneris). Somebody is said to be vulnerable when they have been wounded, injured, hurt or harmed. Or indeed when they are in a state of greater weakness, more fragile, and therefore more easily wounded, injured, hurt or harmed. Vulnerability can be physical, moral and social. An individual, a group, a community, even a country can be vulnerable.

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.
