CALL FOR PAPERS
PACIFIC AND ANCIENT MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION
2011 ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN CLAREMONT, CA
NOVEMBER 5-6, 2011

SPECIAL SESSION
"Contemporary Music"
Presiding Officer: Shawn Higgins, Columbia University, smh2191@columbia.edu

Music is language, too! We communicate through it, it inspires movements, it infuriates governments and authority figures, and it is the soundtrack of our personal lives. This session, the only music session at PAMLA, calls for papers which critically engage with any and all types of contemporary music and either the effects of music on society or how society inspires the creation of music.

The Syntax of Voice in Modernism (Modernist Studies Association/MSA 13, October 6-9, 2011, Buffalo, NY)

Elizabeth Bonapfel / New York University

This panel seeks to explore the relationship between syntax and the category of "voice" in modernism. Recent scholarship on voice, including Mladen Dolar's book "The Voice and Nothing More," often complicates the Derridean distinction between writing and speech by arguing for a multiplicity of voices (musical voice, feminine voice, voice as object, interior voices, democratic voice, societal voice, authoritarian voice, hiccup, cough), a vocal variety that is particularly registered in the modernist period through innovative syntax.
