The 2010 PAMLA (Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association) conference is to be held at Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii, on November 13-14, 2010 (that's a Saturday and Sunday). The Southern California Society for the Study of American Women Writers (an affiliated organization with PAMLA) is seeking papers from anyone (not just SCSSAWW members) on early to nineteenth-century American women writers who have in some way engaged with romantic aspects/depictions of colonialism in the Pacific Rim. We're treating the Pacific Rim quite broadly to include any nation or territory that borders the Pacific Ocean, and the deadline to submit abstracts to www.pamla.org is April 5, 2010. If your paper is accepted, you'll need to join PAMLA for 2010 by May 1 and pay the conference registration fee by September 15.
