deadline for submissions:

Modernist Studies Association, Columbus, OH, November 2018

 

Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock, greatly influenced both British and American literary modernism, the trauma, and its reception, was different on each side of the Atlantic, both in its scale and its quality. This panel seeks essays on both British and American literary and cultural representations of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock. Essays that compare and contrast the American and British experiences and representations of shell shock are particularly welcome, and will be given special consideration.

 

Some authors to consider include:
