Extended deadline! Until Sessions Fill or June 16 (whichever comes first). 121st Annual PAMLA Conference Romanticism Session

Palm Springs, CA
Organization: PAMLA
Categories: Romantics
Event Date: 2024-11-07 to 2024-11-10 Abstract Due: 2024-06-16


This year's theme is “Translation in Action.” While most scholarship about translation deals with the interlingual, we welcome scholarship on the other areas discussed by Roman Jakobson such as intralingual and intersemiotic translation. We plan on celebrating the work of a wide range of scholars and translators such as Michael Cronin, Moira Inghilleri, and many others. We seek proposals dealing with translation as a diverse set of practices, a dynamic field of study, and a set of complex networks that affect our lives. Once again, we are open to a variety of interests, but for this year, we are especially interested in proposals on the theme of “Translation in Action.”

The Romanticism session seeks papers that examine any aspect of Romanticism, whether German, French, English, or in other languages (although we ask that papers and proposals be primarily in English). We are particularly interested in papers attuned to some facet of the conference theme, "Translation in Action.” 

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

· Translations of Romantic works, ideas, or concepts from one language /culture to another

· Romantic ecologies and human/nature entanglements

· The intersection of Romanticism and the environmental humanities

· Rethinking Romanticism via a political, Marxist, queer, or new-Historical lens

· Ruins and disasters

· Post-apocalyptic worlds

· Cosmic voyages and portrayals of the cosmos

· Global spaces and travel

Please submit a proposal directly at https://pamla.ballastacademic.com/ until Sessions Fill or June 16 (whichever comes first). 

The PAMLA 2024 Conference will be held at the lovely Margaritaville Resort in sunny Palm Springs, California. We will be opening our conference with a welcome event on Thursday, November 7 and continuing the conference through Sunday afternoon, November 10, 2024.

The 2024 PAMLA Conference is being held entirely in-person at the Margaritaville Resort Hotel and Conference Center. We won’t be having any virtual or hybrid sessions or papers.
