CFP: Asian Literature (Standing Session) at PAMLA 2014 (Oct. 31–Nov. 2) in Riverside, CA

Papers are sought for the Asian Literature standing session at the 112th Annual Conference of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association, to take place from October 31 to November 2 at the Riverside Convention Center in Riverside, CA.

The session is open to papers that address a wide range of issues, including race, gender, sexuality, class, history, language, peace, war, etc.—you name it—in Asian literature. It aims to explore how these issues arise in the literatures from various regions of Asia while questioning divisions such as Northeast, East, Southeast, and South. Papers from other fields, such as history, sociology, ethnic studies, anthropology, and art, are also welcome.

For more information and to submit proposals, please visit the PAMLA 2014 site at http://www.pamla.org/2014. Deadline for submissions is Thursday, May 15, 2014. Questions can be directed to the presiding officer, whose email address is listed above.
