Australian universities have been recently criticized in the media for failing to provide a world-class humanities undergraduate curriculum, in ways that appear to have a domino effect on the teaching of English in secondary schools. In the humanities, our universities lack the faculty numbers of their overseas counterparts and are vulnerable to government disinterest.

These issues and recent shocks such as the shift to online learning due to the pandemic, reduced tutorial support, and the promotion of STEM and vocationally-focused learning have triggered a new reflectiveness about teaching and learning, particularly in the subject of English.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Annual Conference (Nov. 11-14, 2021)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. It welcomes papers that explore the intersection between religion, politics, and literature.  How can literary texts help us understand the discourses of the religious right or the left and their search for community?  How does faith contribute both to harmful or positive visions of community?  What can literature teach us about the type of faith that will allow us to create and embrace “the beloved community” introduced by Josiah Royce, and later highlighted by Martin Luther King, Jr.?

Proposals that engage with the conference theme of "City of God, City of Destruction” are of particular interest.

Novels, Then and Now invites papers on all novel genres, authors, time periods, cultures, and settings. Consider it a safety net for novels that don’t fit neatly into a specific genre or that cross genres. For example, consider the many sub-genres of Romance with a capital “R”—western, thriller, paranormal, religious, romance (with a small “r”), detective, urban fantasy, etc. From Pearl S. Buck to Lee Child, from Laurie King to Tony Hillerman, from Julia Spencer-Fleming to Emilie Richards—all are welcome. Topics for the 2021 virtual conference could include, but are not limited to:
