Association of Carolina Emerging Scholars

*Please note that the abstract deadline has been extended to March 15.*

Celebrating the world's greatest love stories has long been the subject of authors, painters, musicians, dancers, filmmakers, and critics. We are pleased to accept papers on the theme of "Deathless Love," ranging from the story of Heloise and Abelard to Wuthering Heights and the Twilight series, and dealing with any genre. Of particular interest are interdisciplinary papers making connections between two or more genres, for example, literary or historical love affairs immortalized in visual art and music; the historical and literary intersections of Spiritualism; and cross-cultural notions of love beyond death.

Explorations of Childhood in Nineteenth Century Working Class Life Writing (PAMLA Conference, San Diego, CA, Nov 1-3, 2013)

updated: 
Saturday, February 16, 2013 - 8:33am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

This panel is designed to examine ideas of childhood based on the life writing of working class people. How is child labor/schooling discussed in life writing from working class individuals? How are ideas of childhood vs. adulthood altered through the necessities of class and work? Questions such as these can highlight how ideas of childhood are frequently tied to middle class identity and development, especially during the nineteenth century.
