In the modern era and accelerating in the age of Trump and Brexit, interstitiality, or the space between one boundary and the next, has become an urgent area of investigation. Existing within and between entities, interstices challenge conventional understandings of boundedness, inviting us to rethink the space between objects and ideas as an erupting site of transformation. From this view, rigid divisions can no longer be taken for granted, whether political (as in the case of national borders) or scholarly (such as the emphasis on discrete academic disciplines).
Belief in Contemporary Global CapitalismDeadline for submissions: 15 January 2018
Material culture assumes significance of massive proportions in cultures across the globe by virtue of its ability to trace everyday life and its nuances through the signifying metaphor of objects. The historical trajectories of nations, cultures and communities function in tandem with that of the prevailing material culture(s) in as much as transformations in the latter sphere inevitably represent ruptures or shifts in the former. The stories that objects recount surpass the boundaries of time and space as they transcend both. They function as signifying metaphors, carrying multiple significations of lives lived through and with them.
The PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.
This session focuses on the epistemic, philosophical, and political implications of seeing and speaking. It starts from the image of a face that speaks—an image that solicits further thoughts about the relation between visual arts and literary texts, between representation and dialogue imagination, between being seen as the other and speaking as the other.

Whether it is the photo of V-J Day in Times Square or the image of drowned three-year-old Alan Kurdi on a beach, certain images have the power to become iconic for a generation. Through inspiring shots of Humans of New York or devastating pictures from natural and man-made disasters around the world, digital imagery and visual iconography have permeated our culture and, through their viral nature on social media, have opened us to stories and truths we might not otherwise know.
