Papers analyzing the use of touch as a means of resolving doubts about visual knowledge or the different implications of gathering knowledge through sight as opposed to touch are particularly encouraged.

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.
