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”.

Photography, Modernism, Feminism
 In her essay "From Clementina to Kasebier: The Photographic Attainment of
the ’Lady Amateur,’” art historian Carol Armstrong argues that
photographers such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Lady Hawarden Clementina, and
Gertrude Kasebier took astute advantage of photography's low place on art's
hierarchical scales to assert themselves as artists. The work of these
women, therefore, indirectly calls attention to the relationship between
photography and the emergence of feminism in the U.S. and Britain in the
nineteenth- and early twentieth- centuries. This panel seeks to bring
modernist literature composed by women into the relationship between
