British Literature and Culture: Long 18th Century
We are seeking proposals for papers focusing on the literature, culture and social history of the British/Anglophone long-eighteenth century. This standing session entertains paper proposals on a wide variety of topics, but particularly welcomes papers focusing on context, especially the relation of an author’s life to his or her texts, and the influence from earlier historical periods on works, items, customs, etc. of the eighteenth century. We are particularly interested in papers that engage this year’s conference theme "The Sense of Sight: Visuality, Visibility, and Ways of Seeing."
The 2017 PAMLA Conference is being held over the November 10-12 weekend, at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu, with complimentary bus transportation to and from our official PAMLA Conference hotel, the Ala Moana Resort.
Please submit proposals via the online submission form at PAMLA.org
