The Sign of Stieglitz/ Carrefour Alfred StieglitzAnnouncing a bi-lingual colloquium at Cerisy on art, literature and culture in America as it developed around, or near, or against the figure of the photographer Alfred Stieglitz and his galleries in New York City.
We are interested in papers on all aspects of the birth and evolution of modernist and avant-garde expression in the first third or so of the 20th Century, especially in this first rough metropolis of modernity. A fuller description of the topic and its possible inclusions than can be fit here is now on the Discuss list, where you will also find a short description of the interesting venue for this colloquium.
Papers will run 45-50 minutes, four a day for a week (but attendees often do not stay the full week), with some less formal presentations in the evenings. We expect European scholars to apply and attend, so we are hoping for an interesting international meeting, with a healthy confrontation of positions. Interested parties who do not want to give presentations are welcome and can sign in to Cerisy in the same manner as presenters.
Your proposal, under a page in length, should reach the organizers by June 15. You can write to me, Jay Bochner, for further information.
