The 2019 PAMLA Conference is being held over the November 14-17 weekend, in beautiful San Diego, California once again! Do consider joining us at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside hotel this year, and as many PAMLA attendees can attest, the conference itself is sure to be an incredibly enjoyable, friendly, and rigorous experience for scholars at all stages in their professional careers. Go to https://www.pamla.org/2019 for more information. See also our General Membership tab for PAMLA newcomers here: https://pamla.org/2019/general-membershippayment-policies!

At this time, you may now Submit a Proposal for the 2019 PAMLA Conference via our new conference and registration portal at https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/home/cfp, with more than 160 sessions approved.

Additionally, note just a few of the sessions dedicated to French and Francophone Studies available this year (there are other sessions, too, so take a look around!):

  • French and Francophone Literature and Culture
  • Diversity of French and Francophone Cinema
  • Women in French I: Voyageurs et voyageuses au 19è siècle et au-delà: Regards croisés
  • Women in French II: Women’s Infidelity
  • Women in French III: Women's Agency in Wartime
  • Women in French IV: La pièce avant tout
  • French and Francophone Film and Media in the Classroom
  • Dramaturges et/ou personnages feminins dans le Theatre Contemporain

Along with the many new sessions we have this year, we now offer multiple Session Formats and sessions are searchable via Subject Area (such as American, Asian, Film and Media Studies, and German). Our Conference Theme is "Send in the Clowns," but paper proposals not related to the theme are welcome.
