Panel at Modernist Studies Association 2017 Conference (Amsterdam)

CFP: Global Modernism and Media

 

Modernism as distinctly international is largely discussed through the movement or migration of artists and writers in the multinational metropolitan centers. Despite the global reach of practitioners, there were still many who did not share the same mobility and direct access to traditional artistic centers. We wish to open up the discussion to a different kind of transnational network that fostered reciprocal exchanges and collaboration among cultural producers between the center and periphery.

In June 1914, Wyndham Lewis published the first of the two-issue BLAST, a literary and arts magazine dedicated to a new artistic and cultural movement dubbed Vorticism.  Though short lived, the journal tried to reinvigorate the avant-garde in England and is largely recognized as a seminal work in pre-WWI modernism.

“Robert Penn Warren & Time”

Deadline: 2/15/2017

Most of Warren’s oeuvre concerns itself with Time in one way or another, whether through personal memory, metaphysical speculation, “official” history, cultural traditions, or prognostication.  While the historical and socio-historical elements of Warren’s work remain of permanent interest, we particularly encourage studies that explore Time in its relation to Warren’s metaphysical quest, or “yearning,” and/or in its relation to his aesthetics. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Cultures of Violence in South Asia EditorialSpecial Issue of Kairos: A Journal of Critical Symposium (Vol.2, Issue 1, 2017) While the Indian Subcontinent lays claim to a rich legacy of anti-colonialism borne out of Gandhian ideals of non-violence, it is fraught with periodic flare-ups of violence between the state, insurgency groups, religious organizations, among a wide spectrum of other actors. It could even be argued that the violence has been congenital to the nation-state formation in the Indian Subcontinent, as exemplified in the rich literary tradition of the Partition narratives by SaadatManto, Ahmed Ali, Khushwant Singh, and Bapsi Sidhwa.
