Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Conference CFP, 'Married Female Characters of French Women Authors'
CALL FOR PAPERS
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: Married Female Characters of French Women Authors
Presiding Officer: Francis Mathieu, Southwestern University
Proposal Due Date: May 30, 2018 - submit via PAMLA website, http://pamla.org/2018/topic-areas
Until recently, women were expected to marry, be submissive, and not strive for much more. French women authors have reflected a range of responses to such social expectations through their married heroines, by imagining alternative life choices, subverting oppressive societal norms, and disrupting paradigms.
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.
