Literature has a clear kinship with the other arts. This panel seeks papers examining cross-currents between literature and other artistic forms, including but not limited to music, painting, sculpture, performance art, theater, dance, photography, or film. Topics might include the incorporation of one artistic form in another (music in a novel, literary references in a painting), pedagogical approaches to bringing the arts into a literature course, the work of an author/sculptor, or poetic responses to painting.

Please submit a 500 word proposal and a 50 word abstract via PAMLA's online submission form at by March 30, 2009.
