Drinking from the River of Mnemosyne: Memoir, Truth, and Rhetoric
The modern concept of the memoir has a complex relationship with traditions of art, history, memory, rhetoric, and even ethics. Memoir is usually distinguished from autobiography by its inclusion of reflection—the examination of a life that borrows techniques from fiction to render its story interesting. Generically, it is often classified as ‘Creative Non-fiction,” a categorization that seems unwilling to confront the divide between fiction and non-fiction. That reluctance, however, may recall a more classical interpretation of truth, fiction, memory, and history.

This panel will explore how institutions dedicated to the collection, preservation, and circulation of material knowledge manage sexuality. Sex materials create conflicting imperatives for librarians. As one collections curator at the New York Public Library recently told a reporter, "We needed to collect life as it was lived… It was always part of our mandate." Yet librarians at NYPL also had a mandate to protect the mass of pornographic magazines, pulp novels, and fliers they collected by carefully regulating access to them. Until recently, sex materials at NYPL labeled with three stars required supervision. That one example illustrates how sequestration generally determines who can read about sex and under what conditions.
From imperious TV network executives to “golden gut” programmers, star performers, influential independent producers, broadcast and cable TV mavericks, and auteurist showrunners—all of these individuals have struggled to leave their mark on mainstream and alternative television. From the early pioneering days of network television in the 1940s to the present-day hypercompetitive, multiplatform TV program milieu, these figures have strived to interpret and comprehend public taste in order to produce and distribute programming that satisfies a wide range of audiences, advertisers, and subscribers.
In light of the conference theme of utopia/dystopia, the Carson McCullers Society and the Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians invite papers that explore the ways in which McCullers’ work presents settings and characters situated and interacting within ideal or imperfect structures and relationships. Further, 2017 will mark McCullers’ 100th birthday, and we might consider how her life and work resonates as we look to this centennial and what it offers to contemporary understandings of utopia/dystopia. Presentations about McCullers and her work that are not directly related to the conference theme are also welcome.
Seeking submissions for this panel at PAMLA's 2016 convention--November 11-13 in Pasadena, CA
The early twentieth century traveller possessed an ever-increasing accumulation of documents, manifesting from newly implemented juridical requirements and new technologies of communication and replication.

Cato’s daughter; Brutus’ wife. This panel will consider the figure of Porcia in the Renaissance, where she is to be found in a wide range of cultures and genres. From the earliest accounts, Porcia has been something of a a paradox: heroic and vulnerable; the masculine soul who is also the devoted wife. No woman in history can have passed into legend more closely defined by her menfolk; let’s give her some room of her own.
Topics might include, but are certainly not limited to:
National traditions (eg. Spanish lyrical Porcias; French tragic Porcias)
Porcia in the visual arts
Female suicide: strength or weakness?
