Papers sought for an approved PAMLA special session panel on Shakespeare's Roman plays Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra, Coriolanus, Titus Andronicus, and Cymbeline. The playwright's representation of Roman history and characteristics is of particular interest, but other classical concentrations may work well. Since the conference theme is "Migration, Immigration, and Movement," papers that address this broad topic would be appreciated.

The conference will take place at Seattle University, Washington from October 19-21, 2012.

Submission Deadline: Saturday March 31, 2012.

Proposals should be submitted by March 31, 2012 via the PAMLA website's 2012 conference form available at, where they will be accessible to session chair Alfred J. Drake, Ph.D. His email address is in case you have questions or comments, but please don't submit your proposal to him directly. PAMLA's submission form should be available by the end of January, 2012. The form will require the following information: name, email address, academic affiliation, paper title, proposal (max. 500 words), abstract of the full proposal (max. 50 words), and an indication of whether you'll need Audio/Video equipment and, if so, what kind. You must request A/V equipment during the submission process, not at a later date.

Participation in the conference requires payment of PAMLA 2012 membership dues by May 1, 2012 and the separate conference registration fee by September 15, 2012. See for details. The conference program will be posted online by October 1, 2012.
