This panel seeks to explore theoretical approaches to ancient and/or modern texts. Proposals that deal with a single genre, such as poetry or prose or drama, are acceptable. However, scholars are also encouraged to explore texts that cross traditional boundaries and examine relations between, for instance, the Iliad and the Odyssey on the one hand and the Lord of the Rings novels on the other. Similarly, while read-and-lecture presentations are acceptable, scholars are encouraged to use audio-visuals to support their arguments.

Proposals are to be submitted no later than April 15, 2009. For proposal submission guidelines, please visit the PAMLA website:
The March 30 deadline has been extended to April 15, 2009, for the Critical Theory Panel.
