We invite scholars to join us in the consideration of the intriguing issue of alternative voices through examples from the field of Anglo-American literature, linguistic and cultural studies. We suggest addressing various alternative processes and techniques outside the traditional mainstream in general, alternative styles in literature, alternative genres, a variety of subcultures existing along the fringes of mainstream culture, alternative theories, alternative education practices, etc, as well as the processes involved in the creation of a non-conformist, avant-garde, forward-thinking voices, finally addressing to what extent it is possible to be independent on the norm.

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 Masks of Modernity: Un/covering Global Modernisms
Proposal deadline: May 15, 2011.
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.
