ALA Conference, May 25-28, 2017, Boston

She looked up from her book. “What you despise most in the world is bad, is stupid art.”

“Possibly. But yours seem to me very clear and very good.”

Late Modernism in the American Scene (MSA 19, Amsterdam)

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.
