Women in French at SAMLA 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

This panel considers examples of French and francophone literatures, films, and other art forms, in which contemporary women articulate and/or embody nonconformist physicality which challenges social order. How do women speak against or otherwise resist socially defined borders and boundaries of normative corporeality? Presentations may address both thematic and formal examples of textual disruption that is enabled by bodies which run counter to socially constructed ideals related to women, gender, and race. Possible thematic avenues of inquiry include but are not limited to: pregnancy, aging, disability, beauty, and illness.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 26, 2017

The PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

This session focuses on the epistemic, philosophical, and political implications of seeing and speaking. It starts from the image of a face that speaks—an image that solicits further thoughts about the relation between visual arts and literary texts, between representation and dialogue imagination, between being seen as the other and speaking as the other.
