University of Reading, United Kingdom
Keynote Speakers: Anikó Imre, Professor of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California; second keynote tbc.
Speculative Fiction has become the space in which imaginings of the future proliferate, not totally free of the specter of history, but free from the fatalism that subaltern communities often are forced to cope with under the weight of that history. As such, Indigenous writers, both in the US and in the rest of the world, have turned to the genre as a way to construct futurisms of survivance and resistance. Because settler histories work towards indigenous erasure, the question of individual and communal autonomy is central. In this context, Speculative Fiction has become a key component in the Indigenous fight to regain personal and communal autonomy from narratives of erasure and abjection.

PAMLA 2023 Special Session
October 26-29, 2023
This panel is and isn’t about poetry. At its core, it is a panel about our reading habits surrounding poetry, the ways in which the definition of poetry has shifted in its capaciousness, about how we recognize a poem, what has happened to poetry’s public in the wake of Amanda Gorman’s powerful reading of "The Hill We Climb" in Joseph Biden’s presidential inauguration, and what poetry might become in a heavily digitized, perhaps even metaversal future. The specter that haunts this panel is Stanley Fish’s “How to Recognize a Poem When You See One,” but his essay is really just one starting point in how critics have been fervently trying to recognize our reading habits on poetry.

“We do not know what the dragon means, just as we do not know the meaning of the universe, but there is something in the image of the dragon that is congenial to man’s imagination… It is, one might say, a necessary monster” – Jorge Luis Borges.

« Il y a longtemps, fort longtemps, le monde tel que nous le connaissons aujourd’hui n’était qu’un vaste océan. Il était peu habité, sauf par quelques animaux aquatiques. À cette époque, les ancêtres des Wendat vivaient plutôt au-dessus, dans un autre monde : le Monde-Ciel. »
