Research in San Diego: PAMLA 2013 November 1st, 2013

Today marks the start of the annual meeting of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA), held this year at the Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego.  In my role as liaison between PAMLA and the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE), I’ve organized two ASLE-co-sponsored panels on the topic of Ecocriticism, both of which will take place tomorrow morning.  Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll be presenting some of my own research on 19th-century writings by Ojibwe authors Peter Jones, Joseph Sawyer, and George Copway.  The overall conference program looks very good.  Uniquely, in my experience at least, some of the panels will be held onboard a large stern-wheel paddle ship called the Bahia Belle, which is moored beside the hotel on Mission Bay.  I’m looking forward to learning much–and to enjoying some California sunshine, and maybe even a dip in the Pacific Ocean–in the coming days.
