UPDATE: [American] MSAX: Modernism, Border Crossing and Border Dwellers

updated: 
Thursday, May 1, 2008 - 6:10pm
Daniel R. Bell

This panel seeks to address Modernisms attention on and intention with
borders. Borders here are problematically being thought of in broad
terms ranging from spacial, geographical, and national borders, but also
in various identitarian contexts like race, sex, gender, and class. Of
particular interest to this panel is how the 1990s moment, with the rise
of academic cultural studies and publications such as Judith Butler’s
Gender Trouble, David Hollinger’s Post Ethnic America, and Michael
Awkwards, Negotiation Difference, places attention on borders in a
variety of context and exemplifies through discursive practice the
usefulness and subversiveness of “border crossing”.
