This panel seek proposals dealing with ways of seeing and perceiving the world from the Middle Age to our day. Papers dealing with miraculous accounts, spectacular performances, and travel narratives that explore both allegorical and conceptual visions are welcome. From books of saints, to Iberian travelers through Europe, Asia and the Americas, this panel seeks to examine the narrative voice of those who moved either physically or mentally from one space to another while discovering, performing or even forging, a wondrous world that further complicates notions of perception, performativity and or even contemporary notions of post-truth.

Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by June 26, 2017. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

Paper proposals must be made via our online system found here:
