"Architecture and Literature: Reading the Room" (1-3 November, San Diego); Proposal Deadline: 15 April

updated: 
Thursday, February 14, 2013 - 5:42pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association (PAMLA)

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.

Due to the weather in the northeast last week, 'Coming Home' has been rescheduled and will now be held on Saturday, March 16. Due to the rescheduling, we have extended the deadline for proposals addressing the question of what it means to come home. What is a home, and what does the idea of being "at home" signify?
