Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Conference (PAMLA), October 19-21, 2012, Seattle University
contact email: 


The 110th annual meeting of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association Conference will take place from October 19 to 21, 2012, at Seattle University, Seattle, Washington. This call for papers seeks presenters for this year's standing session of a proud PaMLA tradition, the panel on "Ancient-Modern Relations." We are looking for papers addressing any aspect of relationships, influences, debates or other interactions between ancients and moderns.

The deadline for abstracts (to be submitted on the Online Proposal Submission Form) is April 22, 2012.

1) The Online CFP List of all approved Conference Sessions is available at:
Paper submitters have until April 22, 2012 to fill out the Online Proposal Submission Form at:

2) In order to fill out a paper proposal, proposers will first have to create an account (this process is quite simple). If you chaired a panel or proposed a session last year, you may reuse the same account.

Once you have created an account, you may fill out a paper proposal, including a paper title, a brief abstract (fewer than 500 characters or approximately 50 words), and a longer proposal (fewer than 4,000 characters or approximately 500 words).

You should receive an automatically generated email confirming your submission. If you don't receive that email, or have any difficulty with creating an account, please contact PAMLA's webmaster, Heather Wozniak: .

3) The deadline for proposals is April 22, 2012 (though we are certainly open to receiving submissions currently). Between April 23 and May 15, the Presiding Officer will notify you of the decision regarding your paper.

4) You must rejoin PAMLA for the 2012 year by June 1st in order to participate in the conference. In addition, you must pay your conference fee—although you have until September 15th to do so. In order to make things easier for everyone, there is a combined membership/conference fee option that we strongly encourage you to make use of. Once you join PAMLA for 2012 and pay the conference fee, you will be set to attend the conference.

If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Weldy Boyd at
