How do writers represent the work of being women—where "work" is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose? Proposals of 250-500 words should be submitted via PAMLA's online system (visit www.pamla.org) by March 31, 2013.
"Margin" is clearly not a stable term when talking about Australia, and gives rise to questions such as who is on the margin of whom or what? Is the margin mainly territorial or conceptual? Are those on the margin there by choice or not? How has the definition of the margin changed over the years and how is it likely to change again in the future?

This conference is part of a larger research project, focusing on societies, exchanges and power in the Americas and the Asia / Pacific region, as well as questions of identity representation on an international scale. More precisely, it might be useful to re-think the very notion of culture by examining the experiences / situations and the representations of those who chose – or were forced – to change cultures. The primary goal is to study a cultural displacement within the geographical confines of the Americas / Asia Pacific region, in which the CRHIA (Research center, international and Atlantic history) specializes.
Recent approaches to African contemporary art often celebrate the advent of a global contemporary art scene in which they see an abolition of the provincialist and historicist concepts that were imposed by the West during the colonial period. One assumes that by taking part in new and post-historical/ post-national networks of exchange, facilitated by large-scale international exhibitions, biennials and fairs, artists can express themselves more truly as they are no longer doomed to wrestle with the notions of the pre-colonial/ colonial; to be measured against Western art-historical paradigms, or to be defined via enduring fictions about their own parochialism.
