Dr. Patricia Leighten, "Modernism, Antimilitarism and War"
Dr. Astradur Eysteinsson, "Narrative Crisis: History of Modernism"
Conference OverviewThis year’s conference theme of “Modernist Networks” indicates a number of possible vectors of inquiry: networks among modernist artists, critics, consumers, scholars; networks of influence, borrowing, theft, attribution; the networked modernisms of communications technologies, digital literary studies, electric and virtual modernisms; geographical, political, ethical, ethnic, personal, psychic networks; modernism’s networks and its claims to globality; modernism’s histories and its linkages to other movements, trends, traditions, and our own contemporary moment. Broad as it is, the theme should in no way discourage proposals that do not appear to fit: we welcome panel, seminar, and roundtable proposals on any topic. The primary criterion for selection will be the quality of the proposal, not its link to the conference theme.
All queries should be directed to Stephen Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org
