The Other Senses of Modernism (MSA 14)

updated: 
Saturday, April 19, 2014 - 7:31pm
Yaron Aronowicz/ Princeton University

This CFP is for MSA 14

While there has been increasing attention to the senses more generally and to the 'lower' senses of smell, taste, and touch in recent years, it is pretty clear that most scholarship on modernism that focuses on sensation is visually (and to a lesser extent aurally) oriented. Attention to the visual in modernist scholarship has allowed us to ask important questions about surface and glamour, affect and image, the urban landscape and the commodity, race and sexuality. But our largely visual version of modernism has also, perhaps, not allowed us to conceptualize and encounter the other senses of modernism.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Literary Association

Most literary works take place within the context of some sort of constructed space, e.g. a house, an office, a transit node, a place of worship, a place of performance. The constraints and opportunities of such a setting often contribute to our understanding of characters, actions and ideas. Architecture also provides a rich system of tropes by which readers and writers can define important elements of text either literally or figuratively.

MMLA Panel on Literary Criticism: LITERARY CELEBRITY (Abstracts due by 15 May 2014)

updated: 
Friday, April 18, 2014 - 4:15pm
MMLA (Midwest Modern Language Association)

Where is the discourse presently located surrounding literary celebrity? What are critics saying about literary celebrity and what does this phenomenon mean to these scholars? How do critical assessments of literary celebrity determine what authors get read and how we read their work? This panel will consider how scholars are assessing authorial fame today. Are their analyses biographical, materialist, formalist, feminist, queer, sociological? How do critics contextualize literary celebrity? Through social or political movements, popular culture, literary periods, national or geographical spaces (thinking here about this year's theme of "the living city")? And what do these critical methodologies tell us about the meaning of literary celebrity?
