Modernist Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 27, 2017

Taking the conference theme of “Graphical Modernism” in a slightly different direction intimated in the title, this panel will analyze graphical representation of modernism made possible by Digital Humanities methods. One definition for “graphical” is “of or pertaining to a graph,” to data plotted and coordinates mapped. This panel will feature quantitative analyses of modernist culture in an effort to conceptualize what Raymond Williams might call a “sociology of culture,” the wide-ranging social practices that make culture possible but which are often obscured by the objects themselves.
