PAMLA 2022 Los Angeles: “Geographies of the Fantastic and the Quotidian”
November 11–13, 2022
Sponsored by the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society
The Ralph Waldo Emerson Society invites proposals for a panel on Transcendentalist ways of thinking and writing place and space. Contributions may address how figures such as Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Margaret Fuller (among many others) conceptualized imaginary and concrete landscapes, interrogated the nature–culture divide, or explored new notions of dwelling. Papers on aesthetic, political, social, theological, or philosophical dimensions of the topic are all welcome.
