PAMLA 2015: "Narrative and Time: Visuality in Modern and Contemporary American Literature"

updated: 
Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - 12:48am
full name / name of organization: 
PAMLA 2015 - November 6-8, 2015 - Portland, Oregon

The intersection of the literary and the visual is fraught with questions pertaining to time. As Walter Benjamin and Mikhail Bahktin argue, technological advances that fragment or preserve time, like photography and cinema, have altered our modes of interaction with lived experience. Similarly, Nicholas Mirzeoff argues that visuality is contingent on the prevalence or rupture of temporal and spatial configurations. Mirzeoff, like Paul Gilroy, specifically emphasizes the concept of the chronotope, a conflation of time and space, as a means of communicating and deciphering lived experience in narrative structures. This panel welcomes papers on the concept of time vis-à-vis visuality in Modern and Contemporary American literature.

MSA 17: The Modernism of Politics

The modernist period, as the theme of this year's conference suggests, was a period marked by revolutions of various stripes: aesthetic, social, cultural, and political. Among these, political revolutions often occupied center stage, both in terms of public awareness but also in terms of modernist praxis. Many modernists participated in radical political actions even as they experimented or facilitated experimentation with radical aesthetics.
