PAMLA 2021

“Rhetorical Theory”
Las Vegas, 11/11-14, 2021

Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC

“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.” 

—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)

This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

Out of Bounds: An Exploration of Boundaries in Crisis Online Conference: 14 & 15 July 2021 Trinity Centre for Literary & Cultural Translation 


From the exact lines on an architect’s blueprints to the demarcations on maps that shape the world today, boundaries have consequences. In concrete form they have separated societies, but they need not be material in order to exert power. The onset of crisis often sees the imposition of boundaries that are nebulous and ill-defined but surely no less potent than the menacing walls of segregation.

Global South: Incarceration and Resistance

The Global South
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 1, 2021

The editors of this special issue of the Global South are seeking contributors whose work engages with questions of incarceration and movements for resistance and abolition. As many major works regarding the development of mass incarceration in the United States draw explicit links between the development of the prison and the legacies of U.S. slavery and Jim Crow practices, this issue is, rather (or also), interested in examining the development of the prison-industrial complex through a global south perspective.

Reaching the Summit: Reimagining the Summit Series in the Canadian Cultural Memory

The year 2022 marks the upcoming fiftieth anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series. This hockey series, played between Canada and the former Soviet Union, has become the subject of Canadian cultural mythmaking since Paul Henderson’s winning goal for Canada during game eight. In Home Game: Hockey and Life in Canada (1989), Ken Dryden and Roy MacGregor identified the Summit Series as a uniquely “Canadian memory” and marked 1972 as a “coming of age” for Canada as a nation (195).

                                                                        A Handbook of Indian Indie Cinema

Each year, a large number of Indian Indie films are released that suffer from lack of viewership even when it comes to their target audience, not to mention critical assessments: films that are regional, experimental in nature or have fresh, timely interventions. Many among these deserve recognition, not only from general audiences and moviegoers but also from film scholars and the academia. With the onset of streaming sites and OTT platforms, some of these have made it to the limelight, although a systematic handbook that discusses and features many of these films is currently, absent.
