Travel and Literature will be a session at the Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association (PAMLA) conference 2022, to be held in Los Angeles at the UCLA Luskin Hotel and Conference Center, from Nov. 11-13, 2022. 

The Travel and Literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey, and mobility through literary lenses as broadly conceived, with special interest in movement through city, suburban, and rural spaces. Since this year’s conference theme is “Geographies of the Fantastic and the Quotidian,” we are particularly interested in essays that consider the ways in which literary works address the city, suburbs, and rural spaces as sites for imaginative play and fantastic storytelling, but also narratives of the everyday and mundane.

Possible topics to consider include (but are not limited to): the urban odyssey; fantastic geographies and spaces; flânerie; the city streets as social, political and artistic stage; the city as literary character; non-places (Marc Augé), among others.

The web address for this session's CFP is: https://pamla.ballastacademic. com/Home/S/18532. Potential presenters will be able to submit abstract proposals using our online submission form (they will have to go to https://pamla.ballastacademic. com to login or create an account first). Please directly submit your proposal via that online system (https://pamla. ballastacademic.com as it is the only way to get a paper included in the session). The deadline to submit presentation proposal abstracts is May 15, 2022.
