The Opposites of Modernism, MSA 17, November 19-22, 2015

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 12:14pm
Robert Baines, University of Evansville

In keeping with the conference theme of revolution, this panel will consider one of the necessary preconditions for revolution: opposition. The idea of opposition is central to the concept of Modernism because Modernism is so often characterized as uniting antithetical notions. To offer only a few examples, Modernism is regularly described as being old and new, objective and subjective, timely and timeless, conservative and progressive, coherent and fragmented. This panel will explore the oppositions inherent in the notion of Modernism by examining Modernist works that represent and dramatize those oppositions. The depiction of the opposition may be carried out through character, narrative, image or allusion.

Biography and/as Experimental Fiction, 5 June

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 2:54am
Goldsmiths University of London

This one-day conference deals with intersections of biography and/as experimental fiction in the 20th and 21st centuries. While for scientists an experiment is a common way of proving or disproving a hypothesis and thus of arriving at certainties, fiction writers have long been demonstrating that literary experiments tend to have the opposite effect: they open up alternative and multiple ways of reading and pose new epistemological challenges.

Narrative and the Novel/the Novel as Narrative

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 12:25am
The University of New South Wales, Australia

Keynote Speaker: John Frow, University of Sydney

A symposium hosted by the Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia

Saturday 16th of May, 2015

The novel as a distinct genre of prose emerged in the period of modernity. From the eighteenth century, marked by scholars as the period of the 'rise of the novel', to the late twentieth century, during which the trope of 'the death of the novel' gained cultural traction, the novel has sought to both draw upon and distinguish itself from other narrative genres, from history, biography, memoir, and travelogues, to film, television, and digital storytelling.
