Panel description:

As study abroad becomes increasingly important in students' curriculum, more and more faculty are engaged in short-term and Summer study abroad programs. Participating in these programs as a director or faculty member presents a particular set of rewards and challenges. This panel invites papers that address issues involved in directing and teaching in one of these programs.

Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.

Note: The PAMLA Conference, held over the November 9-11, 2018 weekend at lovely Western Washington University in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, is a broad conference for scholars of a wide variety of literary, cultural, or media topics. There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself.

Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions.
