Proposals are now accepted for the ACLA panel titled "Migrations".
March 31 - April 3, 2011: Vancouver, Canada

Papers for this session should explore the issue of migration in the broadest sense of the term. Potential topics can include:

- migrations of texts and of concepts;
- translations and mistranslations;
- migrating genders and identities;
- queer migrations;
- migration and citizenship in world literature; or
- (im)migration narratives.

We are particularly interested in papers that explore connections between multiple forms of migration. Analyses of literary works, theoretical essays, films, and the visual arts are equally welcome.


Proposals should be no longer than 250 words and must include a 50 word bio.

You can submit your proposal directly through ACLA website:
or email them to Alla Ivanchikova (aivanchikova at alaska.edu).

Submission deadline: October 15.
