We invite papers exploring any aspect of religion, spirituality, and the sacred in Wharton’s work, including the afterlives of religion in gothic, aestheticism, or satire. How does Wharton conceptualize belief, spirituality, or religious tradition within modernity? What place does the sacred have in her writing, and where are the sacred spaces in her work? Are there distinctive features to Wharton’s discussions of religious architecture or sacred art? What interactions take place between Wharton’s fiction and the Bible, or religious texts and genres? How does Wharton’s anthropological eye address religious movements, practices, or characters?
In Testament of Youth, Vera Brittain reflects that the Armistice has “come too late”: “[the people] did not cry jubilantly: ‘We’ve won the War!’ They only said: ‘The War is over’” (421-2).Honoring the centenary of the Great War’s end, this panel seeks papers on ways in which the arts address practices of memory and commemoration, particularly relating to fraught relationship(s) between war and peace, and the ways in which, as Madelyn Detloff reminds us, we exist in a “‘patched’ present troubled by modernist constellations of personal trauma, militarized violence, and ‘imperial loss’” (Modernism 10).
This is a CFP for a proposed panel at the Modernist Studies Association conference (MSA 19, Amsterdam) in August. Details about the conference are available here: https://msa.press.jhu.edu/conferences/msa19/
The richness and complexity of modernist temporalities are well documented, and recent scholarship increasingly points to the interdependencies of time and space. Yet despite the fact that temporal fragmentation and rupture pervade modernist texts, little attention has been paid to the intervals and pauses in which time seemingly stops.
