This panel seeks to challenge national paradigms by investigating transnational mediators.

Please submit a 250-word abstract directly to the conference website - https://pamla.ballastacademic.com - by May 31.

Catherine Bush’s 2019 novel Blaze Island opens with the following epigraph from Elena Ferrante: “Pressing changes are underway. Everything is becoming something else, unpredictably. A completely new outlook is required. The challenge now and for the foreseeable future is to extract ourselves from what men have engineered, a planet long on the edge of catastrophe.” Throughout the novel, Bush underscores the importance of thinking critically about boundaries, specifically those of gender and geography, as she reworks Shakespeare’s The Tempest to particularly Atlantic Canadian purposes.
