This panel welcomes any paper on allegory as either a strategy of interpretation or a mode of literary construction. Especially encouraged are papers engaging with allegory in unconventional or theoretically challenging ways: finding allegory in unusual places; interrogating long-held assumptions; rethinking historical or contemporary critical discourse. Genre and period are open.
Please contact the organizer, Brenda Machosky, with inquiries or submissions. 50-word abstracts and 500 word proposals will also need to be submitted through the PAMLA conference site.
