Mobilization and Modernism: World War I and American Literature
Although much scholarship on World War I and modernism focuses on European
contexts, the war radically impacted America. This proposed panel at
Modernist Studies Association will explore the social and artistic
consequences of World War I in the United States. Potential paper topics
may include but are not limited to World War I and the New Negro
Renaissance, American writers on the battlefield, mobilization and
nativism, war and feminism, and cultural ramifications of the war.
