MSA 17 Boston, November 19-22, 2015: Modes of Relative Certainty

Friday, March 6, 2015 - 10:06am
Luke Mueller / Tufts University

Modes of Relative Certainty

This panel will explore areas of "relative certainty" in modernism, where the supposed impossibility of knowing anything for certain meets the practical reality that things can be known well enough that readers and citizens can make use of them. In the wake of postmodernist criticism's essential disdain for certain knowledge and a general acceptance of modernists as ambiguous, ironic, enigmatical, interested in differance and lack, textual density and obscure allusions, we bring attention to the ways modernist texts celebrate positive knowledge--as contingent as that knowledge may be.
