This panel is seeking papers that will explore the different ways place can determine oneís identity. This panel will be held during the PAMLA Conference, November 1-3, 2013, in San Diego, CA.
Whether discussing immigrant narratives, narratives of displacement, coming of age narratives or something all-together different, geographic location determines a great deal about oneís personal narrative. Place can determine as much about a person as his or her genetic history, making the relationship between identity and place subject to boundless exploration. Our values, beliefs, likes, dislikes, fashion sense, diet, vernacular, and virtually everything about our personhood is shaped by where we live. Indeed, the way we live our lives is determined by the places that we live. This sessionís intent is to take a deeper look at the connection between identity and place.
