Panel description:

This session on the medical humanities seeks papers that explore literary representations of long life, life extension, immortality, prolonged existence, vegetative states, or artificial life. Papers from any literary period are welcome, and they can take a wide variety of approaches including but not limited to disability studies, science fiction studies, medical humanities, or posthuman studies.

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.
