deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

Plesae submit to this virtual (online) panel of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA):

The panel on "Transforming and Transcending Single Stories" invites proposals that address how we can challenge, transform, and transcend single stories so that we break current stereotypes, discriminatory practices, assumptions, and myths about what is different, alien, and unknown. Conscious attempts to resist single narratives prompt us to pay attention to efforts that exclude and undermine diverse perspectives, and that limit our understanding of who we are, how we view others, and the choices we make when we interact face-to-face or through social media on a local, national, and global level.

Examining time and space as anything but concrete and singular, Elizabeth Grosz states that they “are in some sense correlated with representations of the subject” (99). Such a conception associates spatio-temporal location with subjectivity, and to some extent, embodiment and corporeality. Space becomes about more than physical conceptualizations—such as land, location, or locality, or more specifically Earth, land, nation, city, or home—and comes to include broader, more metaphorical, notions such as the space within body and mind, as well as narrative space.

Modern Language Association 2022

Sunday, March 28, 2021

Children’s literature in English has long been a tool for literacy instruction and acculturation to English language, used both as a tool for learning and as a force for homogenization within histories of Anglophone colonialism and imperialism. As scholars and professors dedicated to exploring the ways in which texts for young people make meaning, we know that language functions as both a tool of empowerment and one of imprisonment. Amiri Baraka writes that “users”—or dominant cultures—“have words. And it is the users that establish the world’s realities.” Language, then, inevitably divides as it shapes such realities by sorting people into groups of “users” and non-users.
