Conference theme: “Acting, Roles, and Stages”

Panel description:

This session is open to papers that explore the multiple facets of the notion of voice in contemporary French-language literature. “Voice” is defined broadly to encompass the oral / verbal elements in narratives, plays, and poetry. Possible topics include oral literature, reading performance, radio and stage performance of literary texts, audiobooks, dialogs, the plurality of voices in autobiographical narratives, accents and registers, as well as the voice in the classroom.

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.
