Call for Proposals Asian Film and Media Session at PAMLA 2020 PAMLA’s 118th Annual Conference Thursday, November 12 through Sunday, November 15, 2020 Sahara Las Vegas Hotel http://www.pamla.org/2020  The Asian Film and Media Session at PAMLA 2020 will feature papers that look at Asian film and media produced in a variety of geopolitical settings, across a wide range of historical periods. Presenters are encouraged to bring forth their analyses of various works of film and television, live-action and animated, silent and with sound—or any other work that they feel fit into the conversation of "film and media". By looking at such texts separately from literature, this session hopes to foster more exchanges within the ongoing Asia studies conversation at the annual PAMLA conferences. The session of course welcomes proposals for papers dealing directly with PAMLA 2020’s special theme ("City of God, City of Destruction") as well as those that examine Asian film and media through a broader theoretical lens.  Submit an abstract for the Asian Film and Media Session at the following URL: https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/Home/S/18102  A list of CFPs for all PAMLA 2020 sessions are available here: https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/Home/CFP  The conference theme for 2020 is "City of God, City of Destruction": http://www.pamla.org/2020/conference-theme-city-god-city-destruction  The abstract proposal deadline is Wednesday, July 15.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Satoko Kakihara at <skakihara@fullerton.edu>.  Cheers!
