The Pioneers of Trans-American Art: in the footsteps of a Caribbean Diaspora aesthetic 

 

 

 

Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Visual surprise is natural in the Caribbean; it comes with the landscape, and faced with its beauty, the sigh of History dissolves.

PAMLA conference 2024: Translating Asia

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2024 - 9:32am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Building on the conference theme “Translation in Action,” this panel invites discussion on how Asia is represented and “translated” in modern and contemporary literature, literary criticism, and popular media, including, but not limited to, film, video games, visual novels, music, and fashion. Panelists are encouraged to engage with the following questions:

1. How is Asia and Asian-ness aesthetically and ideologically represented and “translated” by non-Asian authors and producers, e.g., Historia universal de la infamia (1935) by Jorge Luis Borges, La Chinoise (1967) by Jean-Luc Godard, Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) by Rob Marshall, and Civilization VI (2016) by Sid Meister and Firaxis Games?

Adaptation Studies in the Light of Generative AI

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 15, 2024

Generative AI has upended ways of visualizing, reading, and interpreting texts, whether in makerspaces, on publishing platforms, or on college campuses. The use of generative AI raises questions about authorship, copyright, authenticity, originality, and integrity—all critical matters that lie at the heart of Adaptation Studies scholarship.

Seeing the Unseen, Unseeing the Seen

Monday, July 15, 2024

“Seen and Unseen,” the theme of SAMLA 96, which will meet from 15 through 17 November in Jacksonville, Florida, focuses on the tasks of discovering, uncovering, and recovering material that may have escaped earlier notice. The study of adaptation sharpens this duality further. Cinematic and theatrical adaptations famously present visuals that audiences for literary texts have previously had to visualize for themselves. Adaptations that censor the texts they adapt seek to replace old ways of seeing with new by concealing matters they think better unseen. Reparative adaptations seek to heal cultural traumas by shining new light on old assumptions about power and status.

Techno-Orientalism and Genre

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

This session at the 2024 Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association (PAMLA) conference will explore the tendency of contemporary literary works to portray non-human entities through a racial lens. We invite papers that examine this trend in the context of techno-Orientalism, which often reduces and objectifies the image of Asians to that of the hyper-modern. Submissions may adopt either a theoretical or a literary analysis approach. Please check the details here: View Session (ballastacademic.com).
