2011 PAMLA Religion and Literature Panel: Suffering and Religious Identity, Scripps College, CA, Proposal deadline 3/25

Sunday, March 13, 2011 - 5:52pm
PAMLA (Pacific and Ancient Modern Language Association, 11/5-11/6, 2011

The Literature and Religion panel at 2011 PAMLA Conference (November 5-6, 2011; Scripps College, Claremont, CA) seeks papers that address how questions of faith have shaped literary works and cultural meanings. In particular, it welcomes papers exploring the relationship between suffering and religious identity. Some of the questions we will consider are: how do writers represent the connection between suffering and faith? Can certain experiences of epiphany—i.e. moments of empathic identification with the suffering other—be categorized as inherently transcendent? Do religious and non-religious writers come to terms with human suffering in different ways?

***NEW*** Could you hear that? Interdisciplinary approaches to sound and music.

Saturday, March 12, 2011 - 1:31pm
LASA 2012

The 2012 LASA Congress will be dedicated to the bicentennial of national independence in most of the countries in Latin America. The aim of this panel is to generate a forum of discussion and theoretical intervention between and within musical discourse and questions of identity. How does music and its components, such as sounds and silences, promote or interfere with the creation of "national unities"? Are "samba", "tango" and "salsa" inclusive genres of collective identities? And if this is the case, what kinds of dissonances should we consider in order to gain a more profound understanding of these acoustic events?
