[UPDATE] Allegory (PAMLA 19-21 October 2012 - Seattle) Proposals by 5/15 (new date)
Proposals will be accepted for this panel until May 15.
This panel welcomes any paper on allegory as either a strategy of interpretation or a mode of literary construction. Especially encouraged are papers engaging with allegory in unconventional or theoretically challenging ways: finding allegory in unusual places; interrogating long-held assumptions; rethinking historical or contemporary critical discourse. Genre and period are open.
Please contact the organizer, Brenda Machosky, with inquiries or submissions. 50-word abstracts and 500 word proposals will also need to be submitted through the PAMLA conference site.
