This Comparative Literature session, like its namesake discipline, strives to be broad, inclusive, and interdisciplinary. We therefore welcome proposals that touch on multiple works of literature and strive to make use of more than traditional comparative studies, borrowing analytic or interpretive practices from other disciplines such as philosophy, film and media studies, digital humanities, cultural or art history, etc.

This session seeks papers engaging with a wide variety of Comparative Literature topics, including perhaps, but not necessarily, papers exploring the main theme of this year's PAMLA conference, "Translation in Action," and/or other topics beyond that. The session also invites papers focusing on:

· World Literature

· Literature and Translation

· Literature of the Global North & South

· Social and Digital Media content

· Changing or shifting ideologies, identities, genres, or interpretive practices

· Aesthetic or formal (prosodic, narratological, philosophical, or cultural) insights
