The 118th annual conference of the Pacific Ancient & Modern Languages Association (PAMLA) will be held at the Sahara Las Vegas Hotel, from Thursday, November 12, to Sunday, November 15.


Cultural History:  This panel seeks to explore the cultural, political, or social intersections that exist between text and context, including interdisciplinary aspects of culture. Papers are sought that explore the relationships between history and film, history and literature, or history and any other aesthetic tradition.  Submissions that not only practice cultural history but also critically reflect upon that practice are encouraged.  Specific topics related to the conference theme of “City of God, City of Destruction” might include hospitality, cityscapes, gambling, and the carnival, among others.
