This panel explores the power of image culture in shaping the visual identity of twentieth-century transatlantic vanguardisms. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical art production that defied conventions. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, visual art has set precedents for literature on an international level of exchanges.

MMLA 2019: Travel Writing/Writing Travel Session

updated: 
Sunday, April 7, 2019 - 4:40pm
Shannon Derby / Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

In keeping with the annual theme, “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers,” this panel seeks to explore the relationship between duality, broadly conceived, travel, and writing about travel. We seek to interrogate the ways in which travel writing serves as a discursive engagement with multiple dualities, including self and other, authority and subordination, as well as style and content. Submissions from any time period will be considered and papers that explore a broad spectrum of genres, disciplines, and geographic regions will be given special consideration. Papers that address any approach to the conference theme are welcome. Potential topics and themes include (but are not limited to):
