CFP for MSA Columbus:

Modernism and/in Comics

The advent of industrial modernity in the west and of global modernities outside the west helped birth not only the canonical productions of ‚??high modernism‚?Ě and the myriad other modernisms recovered in the wake of the New Modernist studies, but also the immensely popular medium of the comics: political cartoons, newspaper strips, comic books, graphic narratives, etc. This panel seeks to explore various intersections, collaborations, and exchanges between modernism and the comics, including modernist comics, portrayals of modernism in comics, responses of modernists to comics, appropriations of comics by modernists, or the aesthetic legacies of modernism in comics.
