Oral narratives are an integral part of our cultural learning process, allowing people to interconnect with past and future generations through shared experience; however, due to shame, fear, guilt, etc., that oral tradition is sometimes disrupted, leading to a fractured narrative that withholds crucial information from future generations. 

To submit a paper proposal for this session, or one of the many other approved PAMLA sessions, please go to:

Proposals are due by Friday, June 10.

The PAMLA conference 2016 will be held over the 11-13 November 2016 weekend at the Westin Pasadena, CA.
