deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

The PAMLA 2021 Travel and Literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey, and mobility through literary lenses as broadly conceived, with special interest in movement through city spaces. Since this year’s conference theme is “City of God, City of Destruction,” we are particularly interested in essays that consider the ways in which literary works address the city as a site for spiritual exploration, identity loss, or renewal for characters who travel to, from, or through urban spaces. How does travel or movement through city spaces address issues of identity, perception, or power?
