Victorian Empire and Oceania
PAMLA 2017 Conference Special Session
Chaminade University of Honolulu
November 10-12, 2017
Many analyses of Victorian empire focus on India and Africa, yet the British empire also expanded to many parts of Oceania, both directly and indirectly. The papers in this session will examine cultural texts that explore relationships between Victorian empire and Oceania. This session especially welcomes essays that make connections between Victorian empire and Hawai'i.
The Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association 2017 Conference will be held at the Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12. Paper proposals must be made via the online system found here: http://pamla.org/2017/topic-areas. The initial deadline for paper proposals is May 21, 2017.
