You are invited to submit a paper to the "Jewish Literature and Culture" Session at the Annual Conference of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) to be held 11-14 November 2021 in Las Vegas. Jewish Literature and Culture: The Call of Memory Contemporary Jewish writers and thinkers have frequently reacted to the emergence of the Holocaust as a cultural and human rights paradigm by refracting memory toward forgotten genocides, repressed histories, and overlooked parallels with colonial and imperialist projects. The formation of comparative, multidirectional, and “concentrationary” memory studies owes much to writers like Edgar Hildenrath, Imre Kertész, Ruth Klüger, Jorge Semprún, or Patrick Modiano.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Legacies of Trauma: The Tragedy of Before and After
The Milton Society of America will sponsor a panel on Critical Race Milton at the 2022 RSA meeting in Dublin. This panel seeks to continue the ongoing discussions concerning race and racial thinking in premodern eras. Submissions might consider the importance of race in John Milton’s thinking or the role of Milton’s writings in the formation of racial discourses.
To propose a paper, please submit a title (maximum fifteen words) and a 150-word abstract, along with a short cv, to Eric Song (firstname.lastname@example.org), no later than JULY 30 (please note this is an extended deadline).
While the year 2020 is known around the world as a time when everything changed, the year marked an especially different turn for the Asian American community. Many have interpreted the recent waves of shocking racist attacks and anti-Asian sentiments targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities as a direct link to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. However, in reality, it is critical to understand that the voice of anti-Asian violence and hate is far from being a new concept in America.

Established in 1989, the Center for Mark Twain Studies “International Conference on the State of Mark Twain Studies” is the oldest and largest gathering devoted to all things Twain. During times so turbulent and uncertain as to require that that the quadrennial conference on the State of Mark Twain Studies be postponed by a year, the theme of change and growth “speaks to our condition,” as the Quakers say.

Transcultural Perspectives in Language, Literature and Culture in the 21st century
The Latina maid has historically been one of the signature roles Hollywood has created for Spanish-speaking and/or Latina actors in both film and television entertainment. The late Lupe Ontiveros (1942-2012), one of the most recognizable and respected contemporary Mexican-American actors, said to have played the role of the Latina maid approximately 150 times for US audiences during her career, reflecting the stereotyping that still abounds in the US popular imaginary about the female Latinx Other.
The Canadian Parliament passed the War Exchange Conservation Act (WECA) late in 1940 to preserve its currency for the war effort by limiting the importation of nonessential goods. Periodicals, including popular American comic books, were one casualty. Within a few months, Canadian artists and entrepreneurs responded by launching a domestic comic book industry often regarded as Canada’s golden age of comics. This industry produced four publishing companies and six years of original Canadian comics production, including Robin Hood Comics and Triumph-Adventure Comics, which featured Adrian Dingle’s Nelvana of the Northern Lights, one of the earliest female superheroes in comics.
As media texts show us superheroes from around the world(s), demonstrating extraordinary abilities and living a life shaped by a moral code, how we define their iconic features and cultural impact has been the focus of much scholarly debate.
Superheroes have proliferated and multiplied in the 21st Century, coming to prominence in film, television, and video game industries the same way that their popular narratives had begun to flourish in the comic book industry some eighty years before. Yet, while all of these stories and characters are tethered to these early years of the genre, through iterative retellings, reboots, and cultural readjustments, superheroes have consistently found renewed life in modern and contemporary re-imaginings.

The COVID-19 pandemic challenged the capabilities of our modern healthcare infrastructure and forced us to reimagine everyday spaces as sites of convalescence and caretaking. As hospitals reached mass capacity, we had to question: what accommodations can we make to transform both private and public places into spaces of care? The same question motivated nineteenth-century debates over how to best tackle the century’s national health crises. At a time of high imperialism, rapid industrialization, and rampant contagion, Victorians realized that models of caretaking could no longer be relegated to the provincial sickroom.
This panel explores topographies of memory and architecture as a powerful force for cinematic storytelling, cityscapes’ psychosis, etc. As part of the special session, we are looking for contributions examining and analyzing diverse relationships between cinema, television, architecture, and memory and their links with contemporary Spanish media and identity. Submissions in English and Spanish, although we recommend the latter.
