What does it mean to be in a state of exile (literally or metaphorically)? Must longing be part of exile or can exile exist without longing? This virtual panel will consist of creative writers who will read their work (creative non-fiction, fiction, and poetry) and in which they explore what home can mean. Work may either be published or works-in-progress.

If interested, please submit the title of the essay, a brief abstract (approximately 50 words), and a longer proposal (approximately 500 words) by June 15 to PAMLA's Online Proposal Submission Form at:

Literature and Cognitive Science

PAMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

This panel invites papers exploring new subjects and approaches in the field of cognitive literary studies and, especially, cognitive poetics. We are interested in investigations of both the formal and the cultural/historical convergence of literary and cognitive research. What poems, novels, stories, etc. could be newly read and understood with the aid of insights and frameworks borrowed from such disciplines as experimental psychology and neuroscience? But also, why is it that literary scholars can turn to cognitive theories as plausible hermeneutical models in the first place? Where does the resonance between the concerns of writers and scientists, which today we seem to take for granted, come from?

Dear Colleagues,

Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

Many of the finest poets in America and abroad have been exposing the destructive relationships between humans and nature and reimagining our place on the planet to help us avoid catastrophe. As environmental writer John Nichols once stated, "To save the world, first we must love it.” This virtual (online) session on ecopoetics aims to inspire and cultivate such a love. We particularly welcome scholars and poets who explore the natural world as a text and the literary achievement of great nature writers as exemplary readers. Works by Adrienne Rich, Gary Snyder, Joy Harjo, Mary Oliver, W. S. Merwin, and Pablo Neruda, including original poems or translations, such as Merwin’s translations of Jean Follain, are encouraged.

After a year on Zoom, our bodies have become clear indicators of the disjointed embodiment of the pandemic condition. The lingering effects of COVID-19 blur the boundaries between our biology and psyche. Beyond a philosophical analysis of the mind-body problem, embodied minds and mindful bodies challenge us to find new ways of reading symptoms. What are our bodies telling us?

MLA 2022 in Washington DC (hopefully!)

 

Poe scholars and Poe aficionados are always talking about Poe and always reading and rereading his works. He is ubiquitous—in print, film, popular culture, and all over the internet. His online presence increased even more in the late winter and early spring of 2020 as the world wrestled with the COVID-19 pandemic. For those of us who teach Poe and those of us who write about him, doing so in 2020 and 2021 seems more timely than ever, but it also feels different.
