Please consider and feel free to disseminate the following "Call for Papers" for the upcoming PAMLA Conference (Portland, Oregon Nov. 6-8, 2015). The deadline is May 1st. Please go to for instructions on how to submit your proposal online. The session is open to all Modern Languages and cultures including Arabic, Chinese and ESL.

Teaching Languages and Culture Through Film
The "virtual space" is rich with material, and all just only one click away. As teachers of a Foreign Language, we can send the students to a space containing not only the language information we need to give them but also the cultural exposure they need to grow their understanding of a different culture and a different cultural model. How can we cultivate via film instruction a healthy intercultural insight in the global world?

If you have a new creative approach to the use of film in Foreign language and culture pedagogy please submit an online proposal by May 1st. Please follow PAMLA guidelines, and send also a 100 abstract to my email.

Chair and Organizer: Patrizia Comello Perry
