Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

Inspired by Pascale Casanova's world literary system, this panel seeks to challenge national paradigms by investigating transnational mediators. We welcome papers addressing writers who specialize in international mediation strategies (adaptation, translation, mimesis, extraction), specific moments of cultural brokerage, or literary works that are considered to have global influences and international linguistic-literary value. Please submit a 250-word abstract directly to the conference website - - by May 31.
