The modernist period, as the theme of this year's conference suggests, was a period marked by revolutions of various stripes: aesthetic, social, cultural, and political. Among these, political revolutions often occupied center stage, both in terms of public awareness but also in terms of modernist praxis. Many modernists participated in radical political actions even as they experimented or facilitated experimentation with radical aesthetics.
2015 marks the thirty-year anniversary of the publication of Donna Haraway's "A Cyborg Manifesto." This groundbreaking essay has influenced a generation of scholars in diverse fields.
This year's 87th annual conference of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) brings together scholars in literatures, languages, and rhetorics from all over the world. The theme this year is "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts."

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.
