This proposed panel for the Modernist Studies Associationā??s 2018 conference in Columbus, Ohio, November 8-11, seeks to expand on recent work in modernism and religionā??from Pericles Lewis, Justin Neuman, and Matthew Mutter, among othersā??by exploring how modernist writers responded to, incorporated, or shaped religious visual culture, defined broadly. If modernist literary production was much more concerned with questions of religion than past scholarship has allowed, what role did religious visual culture play in shaping that engagement? Did modernist writers adapt or incorporate the religious visual culture of the early twentieth century? Did they shape it or produce new examples of it themselves? How do these encounters change our understanding of modernism and religion as well as our understanding of the religious itself?

Please send a brief abstract of 250-300 words and a short bio to Jack Dudley at by April 1, 2018.
