full name / name of organization: 
2015 PAMLA Conference - Nov. 6-8 in Portland, OR
contact email: 
rkaufma2@binghamton.edu

Briefly: A reader’s sense of time in literature rests upon a fully embodied and affective reading experience. Amongst an author’s mechanisms for communicating a shared sense of time with one’s readers is the use of highly affective, visceral, and/or proprioceptive linguistic cues. I’m looking for work that either explains or demonstrates how the affective communication of felt time works in contemporary American literature. Interdisciplinary work especially encouraged. Panel to take place at the 2015 annual PAMLA conference in lovely Portland, OR, Nov. 6-8, under the title "Ethics and Affect III: Temporalities." Submit 300-word paper proposal to pamla.org/2015 by June 10 (this is an extended deadline).
