This CFP begins from the assumption that modernity and modernization have had deeply contested legacies in the Global South.  While postcolonial frames have elaborated several rich possibilities to engage with these legacies, we are interested in papers that interrogate and/or extend postcolonial frameworks for thinking about modernization and modernity from the perspective of environmental and ecological questions.

 

Papers can include but are not limited to some of the following themes.

Sylvia Townsend Warner and Modernism Conference

Gemma Moss, Birmingham City University

Today, when political misinformation abounds, nationalism and Fascism have reappeared, and we find ourselves contending with ideology in simple, complex and covert forms, Sylvia Townsend Warner’s writing seems ever more relevant. In turns insightful, comic, cutting, and poignant, her texts ask what art is for, and how we might navigate personal relationships, social change, belief and the past. Warner has an acute sense of the relationship between material conditions and human consciousness, of place and the ordinary. This conference seeks papers that analyse her importance for studies of, among other possibilities, modernism, politics (specifically communism), gender and sexuality.

 CALL FOR PAPERS

‘FOR ME, THERE IS NO GAP BETWEEN MY PAINTING AND MY SO-CALLED ‘DECORATIVE’ WORK. I NEVER CONSIDERED THE ‘MINOR ARTS’ TO BE ARTISTICALLY FRUSTRATING; ON THE CONTRARY, IT WAS AN EXTENSION OF MY ART.’

    SONIA DELAUNAY

Decorating Dissidence takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to the work of female artists, designers, and writers to reassess the place of domestic art, craft, and the decorative in modernism.
