Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life with an emphasis on the veteran experience. This panel invites papers that explore various aspects of military service and/or the veteran experience, including those that reflect the conference theme of “Translation in Action." This session invites papers that explore the many facets of military life exhibited in literature, theater, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans as well as scholarly explorations of the veteran experience.

Some topics of particular interest include but are not limited to:
• Transition from military service
• Perceptions or conceptualizations of veteran identity
• Reintegration
• Systems and experiences which shape veterans' post-military experiences
• Interdisciplinary approaches to veterans studies
• Commemoration, memorialization, memory

The 2024 PAMLA CFP page and online paper proposal system is open now until April 30.

This panel will take place during the 121st annual PAMLA Conference (November 6 – November 10, 2024) at the Margaritaville Resort in Palm Springs, California. https://www.pamla.org/conference/2024-conference-theme/
