Panel: Film and Literature

Panel description: The Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association’s Film and Literature session is open to all papers that explore some critical framing between film and literature. Papers can examine narrative and aesthetic perspectives of film and literature within the realm of genre, race, ethnicity, gender, working-class, and disability studies. Analyses of film and literature with a focus on auteurist, feminist, and/or psychoanalytic theoretical approaches are also welcomed. However, this session will give special consideration to papers that engage with the 2021 conference theme of "City of God, City of Destruction." Applicants are encouraged to look at the PAMLA website for more details about the conference theme. The conference is scheduled to take place from Thursday, November 11, 2021 through Sunday, November 14, 2021 at the Sahara Las Vegas Hotel (Las Vegas, Nevada).

How to submit: Potential presenters must submit their abstract proposals via PAMLA’s online platform:  

The deadline to submit presentation proposal abstracts is April 15, 2021. All submissions will be reviewed by April 22, 2021. Accepted panelists should pay PAMLA membership dues by July 1, 2021. We are also working on a virtual alternative to the in-person conference, for those who cannot travel and still wish to participate.

Abstract proposal deadline: April 15, 2021
