Modernist MediascapesArjun Appaduraiâs 1990 coinage, the âmediascape,â a term signifying the entire range of global information systems, provides a useful framework for a panel that considers the varieties of modernist engagements (and entanglements) with popular media. Possible topics might include (but are not limited to) the following: investigative journalism (including the âyellowâ press, or âmuckrakingâ reportage); wartime propaganda and the social engineering of information; advertising and public relations; newsreels and radio broadcasts; journalists or newsmakers as fictional characters. We are particularly interested in approaches that place modernist writers and texts in dialogue with recent debates about truth and the public sphere. We welcome proposals that bring international and/or interdisciplinary approaches to the topic. Please send 250-word abstracts and brief bios to firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 3rd.
