Any proposals dealing with 19th century British literature and culture are welcome, but we are particularly interested in papers that relate to the conference theme "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing" by examining the following: theatrical posters, their relationship to the plays they promote, and their effect on popular culture; book illustrations, illustrators, and the relationships between authors and their illustrators; or issues of surveillance, the gaze, and performative identities and appearances. This session is also interested in papers that specifically focus on this year's theme of sight, visuality, and ways of seeing.

Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by May 21, 2017. The PAMLA 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.
