Most literary works take place within the context of some sort of constructed space, e.g. a house, an office, a transit node, a place of worship, a place of performance. The constraints and opportunities of such a setting often contribute to our understanding of characters, actions and ideas. Architecture also provides a rich system of tropes by which readers and writers can define important elements of text either literally or figuratively. This panel seeks papers on literary works from any genre, region or time period that consider the treatment of architecture as background, foreground, structural model or other component of the literary work or works in question.
This conference focuses on the influence of cultural 'legacies' within current humanities research. By highlighting the work of postgraduates and early career researchers, this interdisciplinary conference will examine the various ways in which 'legacies' are created, restructured, perpetuated and even rejected. It will also question whether newer disciplines respond to cultural mythologies by establishing their own 'legacy' as a means of achieving academic authentication.
Concepts of, and related to, folklore and mythology are seemingly greater than ever, and as such we embrace a wide variety of takes on the panel's theme.
Proposals are now being taken until April 15, 2013 via the online system. Please note that emailed proposals cannot be accepted. The Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association is celebrating its 111th annual conference November 1-3 in San Diego this year.
