Comparative American Ethnic Literatures—Special Session, PAMLA – submissions due March 25, 2011

“States of National Belonging”

This special session welcomes submissions that deploy comparative analytical frameworks to re-imagine topics within American studies often limited by the scope of specialized ethnic subfields. This session is particularly intended for those papers that are not easily categorized within one specific ethnic subfield because the analysis attempts to read texts or artifacts across ethnicities in the service of a pan-ethnic American studies. Papers should interrogate questions that fall within the broad theme: “States of National Belonging.”

Please submit proposals (approximately 300 words) via PAMLA’s online submission form:
