Recent scholarship has employed the term “late modernism” to describe a set of wide-ranging changes to English national culture, in and after the 1930s: a sense of the British Empire’s imminent decline, a necessary reaction to global war, and a growing intellectual reconciliation between politics and art, exemplified by the Mass Observation movement. Modernist studies, however, has not yet established such a guiding narrative for late modernism in the United States. This panel offers a platform for considering what late modernism might look like in the American scene, from the Depression of the 1930s to the upheavals of the 1960s.
