This year's Latino/a Literature session seeks papers on literary or cinematic representations of the borderlands in cultural texts produced either north or south of the U.S./Mexico border. Ideally, the panel will consist of essays that diversely interrogate the shifting meanings of the border concept — and border identities -- throughout the late 19th and 20th centuries.

Proposals of 500 words and a 40-word abstract must be submitted by April 5, 2010 using PAMLA's Online Proposal Submission Form at
