The fifth annual Modernist Studies Association Conference is the first to be held in Europe. Hosted by the University of Birmingham and the University of Sussex, it will take place in the heart of the multicultural city of Birmingham, a world-renowned conference centre and the UK’s second city, where Victorian architecture mingles with exciting and innovative redevelopment. The programme will include plenaries, panels, peer seminars, prose and poetry readings, along with film screenings and book and art exhibits specifically related to the international and interdisciplinary study of modernist cultures.
