CFP: From Weimar to Los Angeles: Modernism in Literature and Film

This panel will focus on the relationships between late modernism (both pre- and post-WWII) and film. We welcome submissions on any topic in this area; however, we are especially interested in discussions on the city, the flâneur, spectacle, the avant-garde, and Situationism, or papers that explore questions of influence, anxieties about representation, formal strategies, and politics. 

Please send 250-word abstracts and a brief (2-3 lines) biographical statement to both Tara Thomson (tst@uvic.ca) and Angus McFadzean (gusmcf@yahoo.co.uk) by Thursday, March 15.
