Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Conference

Friday, November 9, 2018 to Sunday, November 11, 2018, Western Washington University, Bellingham, Washington

Conference theme: “Acting, Roles, and Stages”

Session: Alternative Communities in Hispanic Literature and Culture
Presiding Officer: Luis H. Castañeda, Middlebury College
Proposal Due Date: May 30, 2018 - submit via PAMLA website, http://pamla.org/2018/topic-areas

Panel description:

We invite proposals on alternative communities in Hispanic (Latin America and Spain) literature and culture. Alternative communities consist of circles of artists, intellectuals, cults, and marginal urban dwellers, among others, that have existed either in fictional or historical form. Their existence helps define the “other side” of official institutions and notions of national, social, or cultural identity.

Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.

Note: The PAMLA Conference, held over the November 9-11, 2018 weekend at lovely Western Washington University in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, is a broad conference for scholars of a wide variety of literary, cultural, or media topics. There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself.

Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions.
