PAMLA (the Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association) is having a conference Nov. 13-14 2010 at Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Southern California Society for the Study of American Women Writers (an organization allied with PAMLA) is seeking papers on women writers who have in some way engaged with romantic aspects/depictions of colonialism. Papers regarding Oceanic locations and locations in and bordering the Pacific and regarding pre-twentieth-century literature will be of particular interest, but we're open to all submissions. You can submit through www.pamla.org and mail lmthomas@ucsd.edu with questions. The deadline has been extended to May 4th, so please share this widely.
