This is a call for papers for the anual PAMLA conference to be held in Los Angeles, California at the UCLA Luskin Conference Center and Hotel between Friday, November 11 and Sunday, November 13, 2022.

The Film Studies session is open to all papers that explore some aspect of film or Film Studies, but we are particularly interested in papers attuned to some facet of the conference theme, "Geographies of the Fantastic and the Quotidian.” For example:

-The role of space and place in genre filmmaking

-World-building in fantasy film and television

-Cinematic cityscapes

-Road movies

-Representations of localized ecologies

-Settler colonialism in film

-Geographical otherness

-Films limited to one setting

-Representations of claustrophobia or agoraphobia

-Landscape in film

-Otherworldy spaces

-Outer space

-Theme parks and the carnival

-The role of satire in constructing places

-Impact of space in residential life

-Transcending real and unreal spaces

Please submit abstracts by May 15 to https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/Home/S/18471. Though we do hope for proposals related to the conference theme, any submissions related to cinema and media studies will be considered.
