Modernist Studies Association

Characterized by avant-garde alliances, collectives, salons, magazines, manifestos, mergers and ruptures, the modernisms of the first half of the 20th century were an associative affair. The exemplary moderns, however eclectic a group, joined in revolt against the forms and pieties of the 19th century, spurring aesthetic innovations and energizing modernity's political, cultural, and technological revolutions.

Romantics, Victorians and early Modernists writers and artists were successively called upon in their respective generations to challenge the social, aesthetic and ethical mores of their time in their work as well in their personal lives. This panel invites papers that explore not only how these aesthetic and ethical parameters shift and alter over time but also the short term reprisals and long-term rewards that often result when these boundaries are transgressed and/or when writers or artists and their creations take risks. Possible sub topics may include but are not limited to: gambling, success and failure, providential reward, ostracism and the sublime and the beautiful.

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry (Vol 2 Issue 1)

The term speculation has, among others, two specific strands of meaning: thinking/narrating the realm of the possible and describing a form of economy that borders on the fluctuations in the material value of a marketable good.

"We badly need a new way of thinking about novels that acknowledges their technological reality. We have to learn how to look at fiction as lines of print on a page and we to ask whether it is always the best arrangement to have a solid block of print from one margin to the other running down the page from top to bottom, except for occasional paragraph indentations."

updated: 
Wednesday, April 8, 2015 - 10:25pm
Chris Martiniano / Midwest Modern Language Association

The Illustrated Texts session welcomes papers as well as innovative or even illustrative presentations that interrogate the concept of illustration broadly construed. In addition to proposals that explore traditionally illustrated texts, this panel also invites proposals that question the illustrative nature of much of our own work. Does illustration "light up, clear up, or elucidate" our text as its etymology suggests or is it operating differently?
