[MSA 2018] Peripheral Walls: Poster Art and the Critical Delineation of Modernism

Modernist Studies Association

Writing in the English magazine The Poster in 1899, French critic Maurice Demeur declared: “In the course of my studies of pictorial placards, I have often had cause to deplore in the art magazines the almost entire absence of comment on mural decorative art in Spain. Hardly anything, it would seem, is written about Spanish posters and colour prints. What is the reason of this neglect of so characteristic and remarkable an impulse? . . . I am surprised to see that Boudet in his book Les Affiches Étrangères, Sponsel in his clever publication Das Moderne Plakat, and many other writers have entirely ignored the subject. Does this arise from lack of knowledge or negligence?

Panel, Women of the Avant-Garde and Political Dissent: Resisting Power from the Margins

Monday, March 12, 2018 - 9:23am
SAMLA 90, Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and their Allies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

Siblings on Stage and Screen

This one day symposium aims to explore the relatively under-developed study of siblings in visual culture and performance.


In drama, family relationships are both ubiquitous and complex and whether a Renaissance revenge tragedy or a play by Harold Pinter, the plot often pivots on the loyalty or jealousy between siblings, confusion caused by twins or conflict prompted by illegitimacy. Whilst there have been many explorations of the role of siblings in Shakespeare, the examination of sibling relationships in its many forms, remains a fruitful area of discussion for plays from the sixteenth to twenty-first century.
