Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Conference CFP, "Playing Our Part: Social Hierarchy and the Performance of Class in Literature"

While historically a product of birthright, and more recently associated with merit, social class has always presented itself as a set of expectations setting the stage for encounters between unfamiliar people. Whether sincerely or in masquerade, everyone adopts a social class as a role to be played before an audience. In line with this year’s conference theme “Acting, Roles, and Stages,” this panel, examines social class as performance and focuses on literary works across genres and eras that present class accordingly. From estates satire to the minstrel show, from social realism to the theater of the absurd, we will consider ways that literature either enacts the performance of class or dramatizes its enactment.
