[UPDATE] MSA 17 - Modernism's Reiterations

updated: 
Thursday, March 12, 2015 - 11:32am
Modernist Studies Association

In "Tradition and the Practice of Poetry", T.S. Eliot states that "The perpetual task of poetry is to make all things new. Not necessarily to make new things." In a similar vein, in ABC of Reading, Ezra Pound famously argues that literature is "news that stays news". Years after its hey-day, how do we understand modernism's commitment to the "new"? From a contemporary standpoint, how has modernism's past been made new again? From W.B. Yeats' turning gyre, to Charlie Chaplin's persistent factory gears in Modern Times, we can gather that when it comes to modernism, "revolution" need not only mean change, but also the very cyclicality of change itself.

Christopher Allen Varlack, University of Maryland Baltimore County

From Langston Hughes' 1955 collaboration with photographer Roy DeCarava in The Sweet Flypaper of Life, Wallace Thurman's 1929 collaboration with William Jourdan Rapp in Harlem: A Melodrama of Negro Life in Harlem, and the infamous collaboration of Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston in Mule Bone: A Comedy of Negro Life, the Harlem Renaissance era was a time of flourishing inter-arts collaborations under-examined in contemporary criticism. This panel therefore welcomes papers about the inter-arts collaborations of the Harlem Renaissance inspired by the SAMLA 87 theme, In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts.
