This special session for the 2012 PAMLA Conference seeks papers that address constructions, representations, and interpretations of dreams and dreamlike states. What extent do we have control over our dreams? What is the purpose of dreaming, if such purpose exists? What of other, dream-like altered states of consciousness?

This session welcomes papers from across the disciplines. Please use the PAMLA 2012 site to submit a proposal before Saturday, March 31, 2012.
