Our mission

The Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) is dedicated to the creation, advancement, and diffusion of the aesthetic practices and knowledge of ancient and modern languages, literatures, cultures, and the arts.

PAMLA hosts an annual conference, publishes two issues of its peer-reviewed journal, Pacific Coast Philology, and hosts online events and the PAMLA Arts Matter website.

Anyone interested in creative writing, language, literary, or cultural studies, or the arts may become a member: see Membership for further information.
