PAMLA is the western regional affiliate of MLA. The 2010 conference will take place November 13-14 at Chaminade University, Honolulu, Hawaii. The proposed panel will analyze Spanish inquests of the sea, as portrayed across different time periods. We are particularly interested in explorations of the "sea" as a:
a)bridge between cultures and identities,
b)metphor of a search for personal freedom, and/or
c)symbol of creative borders that celebrate "uncomfortable" identities and expressive modes.
While literary works are the main focus of this session, we welcome papers that relate the literary to the visual arts as well.
