  • Did you miss the initial PAMLA paper proposal deadline?
  • Did you get brain-lock and neglect to propose a paper for PAMLA 2018?
  • Are you a tad blue, perhaps even a deep blue-purple-despondent, as a result?

Well, do we have GOOD news for you! We have now entered the "Sudden Death, First Come, First Served Extended Deadline Period" (SDFCFSEDP to connoisseurs of unmanageable acronyms).

In Memoriam: Hector Mario Cavallari

Hector Mario Cavallari

We are saddened to announce that long-time PAMLA member, Mills College Professor of Spanish and co-chair of the Spanish program, and former PAMLA President, Hector Mario Cavallari, died on Sunday, Oct. 27, 2016. Cavallari was a kind and generous friend to many at PAMLA and at Mills College. He came to Mills in the fall of 1986, where he quickly developed a reputation as a caring, unwaveringly committed scholar. He published in Pacific Coast Philology, but widely elsewhere too, and always with care, thoughtfulness, and a love of language.
