     The failures of traditional periodization are nowhere more evident than when Western scholars approach non-Western cultures, religions, and/or political formations under the rubric of “middleness.” Even as projects such as the “Global Middle Ages” seek to broaden the geographic scope of medieval studies, which has for too long ignored the cultural production of non-European, non-Western societies, such endeavors import assumptions about modernization and enlightenment that may obscure as much as they reveal about the peoples and places they study.

Combining disability and modernist studies, this panel engages in current discourses on disability in modernist texts. The modernist moment, marked by war trauma, advances in psychology, and eugenics, is a rich area of inquiry for disability theory. Recent disability theory argues that representing disability is an effort to engage with the unknowable, which we also see in the modernist preoccupation with connection. Papers may address representations of disability in modernist texts and/ or how authors negotiated their disabilities.

In the twelfth century, Hugh of Saint Victor compared the temporal world to “flood water sweeping past,” and Bernard of Cluny imagined it to be unfixed and unstable like “streams of water.” Linking apocalyptic imaginings and temporal anxieties with the flux of liquid landscapes was not uncommon in the Middle Ages. But medieval waterways also gave life. This panel seeks to explore the generative nature of rivers, channels, and oceans at the edge of human experience, exploring the dynamism of fluid liminality.
