of the Archive
Note: In order to facilitate communication regarding the conference, we request that MSA members take advantage of the new MSA email listserv
This year's conference will be organized loosely around the theme "Out of the Archive." Although the organizers welcome seminar and panel proposals on any topic related to the MSA's focus, particular preference will be given to those which consider the ways in which visual, literary, cinematic, journalistic, personal, financial, musical, and other sorts of archives have begun to alter the structure and boundaries of aesthetic modernism.
