James Travis Rozier / University of Mississippi
contact email: 

This panel seeks submissions dealing with the works of John Dos Passos in the interests of reviving scholarship on an author who has received scant recent critical attention. In keeping with the theme of the convention, the topic will address ways in which Dos Passos's works represent, respond to or possibly resist the forces of modernity. This panel seeks papers which address the ways Dos Passos's work renders visible the forces of modernity and seeks to resist these forces. Possible paper topics include, but are not limited to, the ways in which Dos Passos' formal experimentation deals with the issues of alienation, flows of capital, new technologies, historical fracture or social loss. Submitters are encouraged to interpret this topic broadly.
