Special Session Call for Papers
Deadline April 15, 2013

Raising questions about what it means to "live" in a state of 'always
already after' begins to unravel new understandings of violence and life, especially relative to how communities and identities are formed and sustained. How can a dialogue between post-human and post-colonial studies expose the tensions embedded in being "post-"?

This panel seeks papers that address questions of life, community, and identity in the contemporary context of the "post-". We are interested in work that pays attention to the boundaries established and sustained in "post-" rhetorics. We are especially interested in work that engages post-humanist and post-colonial rhetorics toward opening dialogues among communities and making those communities more flexible.

While we are happy to answer questions via email, papers must be directly to the PAMLA paper submission site:
