Archaeological Modernism (deadline April 20) (MSA 12, Nov 11-14, 2010)

updated: 
Monday, March 29, 2010 - 12:34pm
Stephen Park, University of Southern California

This panel will explore the interplay of archaeology and modernist art and literature. While archaeology may initially conjure up images of museums and dusty relics, its methodological goals are thoroughly modernist—to strip away the accrued meaning of history and get down to the original object itself. It aims, in other words, to "make it new."

[UPDATE] The Fictional Lives of American Presidents

updated: 
Friday, March 26, 2010 - 3:47pm
Christian Long / University of Canterbury, Jeff Menne / University of Richmond

While cinema, television, and literature have regularly imagined fictional presidents, the act of fictionalizing the lives of American presidents—that is, giving fictional account of nonfictional presidents—is an imaginative endeavor with greater entailments: it configures the actual and the virtual, the real and the fictional, as a function of our contemporary incapacity to think historically about our present. Real U.S. presidents appear in a number of recent films—Dick (1999) and Frost/Nixon (2008) tell Nixon's tale, while both Beavis and Butt-Head Do America (1996) and W. (2008) feature a sitting president.
