Looking for paper proposals for approved "Disney and its Worlds" session for the 2014 PAMLA Conference in Riverside, CA (October 31 - November 2, 2014). From the Frankfurt School to contemporary cultural studies, the social ramifications of Disney movies and theme parks, and their cultural penumbra, have long provided rich terrain for critical scholarly analysis. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Papers that draw upon the rich canon of scholarship on Disney and engage with its cultural effects through critical theory, spatial or historical analysis, Feminist methodologies, or close reading strategies are particularly encouraged.

Paper proposals due to http://www.pamla.org/2014/topic-areas website (you must use the online paper proposal system) by midnight, May 15.
