PAMLA 2023 Los Angeles: “Shifting Perspectives”
October 26–29, 2023
Panel: "Emersonian Perspectives"
Sponsored by the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society
The Ralph Waldo Emerson Society invites papers that explore the conference theme “Shifting Perspectives” in the context of Emerson’s work and reception. Contributions may address how perspective informs Emerson’s philosophy, aesthetics, poetics and politics. They may also explore in what ways Emerson’s work teaches us to shift our approaches to reading, thinking, feeling, writing and teaching. Finally, they may also show how other philosophers, poets and artists shift our perspective on Emerson.
