In anticipation of the 2022 Annual Convention of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association (to be held at UCLA, November 11-13, 2022), we seek proposals on the intersections of politics and poetry in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.  This session affords a space to assess the past century’s poetic/political interventions, exploring how poetry and poetic experience have lent themselves to critiquing the status quo, imagining radical futures, mobilizing collectivities, and resisting the present in various ways.  Of particular interest are abstracts that are adjacent to the conference theme –“Geographies of the Fantastic and Quotidian” –or which specifically engage with the poetry of Los Angeles as

PAMLA 2022. Los Angeles, November 11-13

Special Session

This session explores Post-War road narratives by women, written in English, French, Spanish or Indigenous languages, that present fictionalized accounts of journeys across North America.
