Session: British Literature and Culture: Long 18th Century
Contacts: John Beynon, California State University - Fresno (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Description: We are seeking proposals for papers focusing on the literature, culture, and social history of the British/Anglophone long-eighteenth century. This general session entertains paper proposals on a wide variety of topics with particular consideration granted to papers that engage with the conference theme of "City of God, City of Destruction."
Top tip: when you log in and enter the Call for Papers portal, remember that you have to click on the title of the session that you are interested in submitting your paper to, and then click on the green “Submit Abstract” icon at the top right corner of the page!
And for those who are interested, note that our conference theme this year is “City of God, City of Destruction,” an homage to contemporary urban literature, culture, architecture, as well as other topics, including the noir genre, postmodern cityscapes, dystopia and postindustrial decay, and/or the sublime, spiritual spaces found across many urban depictions.
We look forward to reading your submissions, and all of us at PAMLA HQ hope for calmer, better days ahead.
