CFP: Little Magazines and the Visual Arts in Modernism (4/20/06; MSA, 10/19/06-10/22/06)

Tuesday, March 28, 2006 - 2:30pm
Blizard, Dawn


Modernist Studies Association 8

October 19-22, 2006, Tulsa, OK


"Little Magazines and the Visual Arts"


The arrival of modernism in the visual arts, for British and American audiences alike, is often equated simply with urban spectacles that drew critical viewers en masse - in Britain, the 1910 exhibition of "Monet and the Post-Impressionists," and in America, the 1913 New York Armory Show. This panel seeks to complicate these assumptions by considering the role that visual reproductions and verbal descriptions of art have played in shaping the conception of what we have come to know as modernism.

CFP: Home/lessness (4/30/06; journal issue)

Tuesday, March 28, 2006 - 2:30pm

Call for Submissions on Home/lessness

Locus Suspectus, a new magazine of art and culture, seeks textual and
visual proposals for its second issue exploring the notion of "home".
Globalization has made it increasingly difficult to conceive of home
as a
singular and stable location. Moreover, home for many individuals often
exists as a constant state of homelessness due to social, economic, and
political circumstances. Despite this plurality of meaning, home often
carries with it a nostalgic longing for stasis and a pressure and
to identify ourselves and others largely in terms of where we live and
where we have come from.
