This panel seeks to address how questions of faith have shaped cultural meanings in American literary history.  In particular, it welcomes papers that examine the relationship between secularity and literary development in the United States.  Some of the questions we will consider are: How did the growth in secularity influence the way American writers conceptualized faith and experienced transcendence?  How did it influence the way they responded to suffering? How did they express the tension of living within a secular age? What are the expressions of transcendence within secular culture? 

The proposal deadline is June 10, 2016.  Please submit your proposal by going to the PAMLA website:  pamla.org

Gods and Heretics: Figures of Power and Subversion in Film and Television
October 26-October 30, 2016
The Milwaukee Hilton
Milwaukee, WI (USA)  

When romance is brought to life on film and television, it becomes a public discourse capable of either normalizing or challenging behaviors and activating social criticism. Debates over the shape and form of love on the silver screen have been at the center of film and television history, pointing to its significant cultural power. This area, then, will explore both “the power of love” in screen history and the implications of love in film and television.

    Over the past 30 years, scholars have written extensively on the influence of skepticism in the early modern period, frequently characterizing the philosophical school as a threat to the era’s epistemology, ethics, and religion. But could skepticism also work to generate meaning, create stability, or provide a sense of tranquility? This panel series seeks to build on and compliment earlier readings by examining how ancient philosophical models-- such as Stoicism, Epicureanism, and Pyrrhonism-- as well as the skeptical texts available to early modern readers might complicate our current understanding of skepticism as a fundamentally destabilizing or disruptive force.
