In his 1967 "Des Espace Autres" Michel Foucault wrote that in contrast to literary and cultural criticism's previous privileging of history, periodization, and time that "The present epoch will perhaps be above all the epoch of space." In the past generation scholars working across a wide variety of the humanities including literary theory, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies have confirmed Foucault's prediction.

Pacific and Ancient Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Conference
November 11 - 13, 2016
Place as Archive in 20th and 21st Century Literatures
This panel aims to explore the ways in which physical place has become archival within 20th and 21st century literatures. One of the most obvious examples may be the ways in which place is archival in post-9/11 literatures, but this panel welcomes varied and original interpretations of place as archive.
Rabindranath Tagore and William Butler Yeats met at a dinner on July 7, 1912, at William Rothenstein's Hampstead home in England. At a turning point in Yeats' writing life, meeting Tagore was revolutionary, and the ensuing collaborations were both fruitful and problematic. This literary friendship had far reaching impacts on both writers' careers with Tagore catapulting into international fame and eventually getting the Nobel Prize within a year. However, the meteoric friendship also saw a curious fall-out that raises questions about translations, approaches to nationalism, postcoloniality and representation.
