VOICES OF PALESTINIAN LIBERATION 

 

PAMLA Conference

7-10 November 2024 in Palm Springs, California 

Session Format: Panel of 3-4 presenters, 15-20 minutes each and a 30-minute group Q&A afterward

 

This panel centers the literary and artistic expressions of Palestinians by exploring how writers, artists, journalists, historians, and activists navigate themes of abject loss, violence, and trauma; the aim is to offer a multifaceted perspective on the Palestinian experience, one that transcends problematically uncomplicated narratives and foregrounds the power of language and media in shaping identity, fostering solidarity, and demanding justice.

« The Translator at Work: Neutrality in Translation and Interpreting »

Translators and interpreters are expected to be neutral mediators who facilitate dialogue and enable understanding and cooperation between speakers who do not speak the same language. Research has shown, however, that the transfer of information from one language to another is rarely performed without making certain contributions that go beyond the mere rendition of the message being transferred. Translation is a product of cross-cultural interactions that requires linguistic and at times, sociopolitical or even ideological changes.

Masculinity Studies in Ireland: Mapping the Field

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:19pm
Angelos Bollas / Maynooth university
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 30, 2024

As an interdisciplinary academic field devoted to examining and critiquing the social, cultural, and historical constructions of masculinity, masculinity studies explores how masculinity is defined, performed, and experienced across different societies and time periods. This field intersects with various disciplines, including sociology, gender studies, psychology, cultural studies, and history, among others. This often leads to the absence of dedicated departments or research centres in academic institutions focusing exclusively on masculinity studies which, in turn, makes it challenging to enable productive dialogues among disciplinary boundaries.

Student Engagement with Theory in the Undergraduate and Dual Enrollment Classroom

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2024 - 9:41am
Julia Reade/PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Teaching literary analysis invariably includes learning activities involving reading, deciphering, and applying theory to a text understudy. For many undergraduate and dual- or cross-enrolled students, this activity is no small feat. Rather than tossing critical theory to the wayside as "too tough," we persevere! This session seeks presentations from educators who have had varying degrees of success bringing critical theory into their humanities courses. In order to render accessible to students the complex and insightful ideas sandwiched within the academic jargon of critical theory, how are we translating the rigor into palpable bites?
