"Screening Finance: Economic Fictions and Realities" (SCMS Panel, Atlanta 3/30-4/3 2016)

Sunday, July 12, 2015 - 1:34pm
Justin Owen Rawlins / Indiana University

Mass media have always had complicated relationships with finance. From the financial institutions and logics that have long structured Hollywood, to the intertwined proliferation of communications and financial networks globally, scholars have mapped these transformations in industrial and political economic terms.

C19- (Re)forming the Progressive Era

Friday, July 10, 2015 - 5:56pm
Laura Fisher and Autumn Womack- C19: The Society of Nineteenth-Century Americanists

The Progressive Era (1890-1920) occupies an unsettled place in Americanist literary studies, despite the period's claims to forward-looking progress. To some extent, this uneasy relationship to the discipline-- whose professional protocols, pedagogy, and scholarship often operates by means of century-based periodization-- reflects the period's own wildly unsettled nature.
