It is a pleasure to invite you to the 118th Annual Conference of PAMLA. The conference is organized by The Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association and will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Sahara Las Vegas Hotel and Casino and Online on Thursday, November 11th to Sunday, November 14th 2021.  The theme of this year’s conference is “City of God, City of Destruction.”

This Virtual/Online Panel, # 18097 Theorizing Filipinx Experiences in the Diaspora, seeks to discuss and analyze issues that Filipinx and Filipinx-Americans in the diaspora experience.  It is our hope that this virtual (online) panel can help theorize the Filipinx experiences, and equally importantly, shed light on the complexity and the diversity of the Filipinx realities.
