November 6-10, 2024 
 "Rhetorical Approaches to Literature" (Paper / Panel)    
This standing session is open to all papers that explore some aspect of rhetorical approaches to literature, including (but not limited to) papers that:  
apply aspects of rhetorical theory to specific literary works  
explore the rhetorical agendas of individual authors and/or broader literary movements/periods  
examine the intersection of literature, culture, and politics through a rhetorical lens  
Although not required, we are also particularly interested in papers attuned to some facet of the conference theme, "Translation in Action."  
Anyone interested in submitting a proposal (<500 words) and brief abstract (<50 words) can upload their documents by creating an account at https://www.pamla.org/pamla2024/ and then searching for the “Rhetorical Approaches to Literature” standing session (Session ID: 19290). 
PLEASE NOTE: The original deadline for this session has passed, but we are still looking for a couple of panelists to round out the group. Although the new deadline is listed as 6/16/24, all new submissions will be evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out!
