Have you long pondered Ringo’s existential torpor in “A Hard Day’s Night”? Hotly debated the gender politics of “Girl”? Are The Beatles your “myth to live by”?

Turn your Beatle musings into a creative academic treatise and submit an essay for The Beatles as Literature section at the PAMLA Conference this October at Seattle University.

The Beatles' wildly diverse catalogue and career offer infinite opportunities for studies in mythology, folklore, gender politics, Marxism, poetry, childrens literature, and comparative religion, to name just a few.

Abstracts and paper proposals are due March 31

Please write to Jocelyn Heaney for details:
