This special session at PAMLA will investigate the soft boundary between Literature and Philosophy by probing how the narrative conventions of the two forms use language to construct significance(s). In what ways do the vocabulary, contexts, connotations, and purposes of these forms converge and/or diverge? How can we stimulate a productive conversation between them?
Papers addressing any aspect of this topic or performing interdisciplinary analyzes of particular texts are welcome. The 2010 PAMLA conference will take place November 13-14 at Chaminade University, Honolulu, Hawaii. Submit proposals online by April 5 at http://www.pamla.org/2010
