Since at least the early 1990s, the transnational turn in Modernist Studies has necessitated a re-thinking of Modernism's traditional boundaries. Propelled by feminist reevaluations of the canon, as well as minority discourses about visibility, New Modernist Studies ask us to think more broadly about Modernism and modernity. This panel seeks to investigate the ways in which various scholars navigate the peripheries of Modernism. For this panel, "peripheries" are broadly defined as texts, movements, or authors previously or currently unincorporated into the traditional canon. How do authors' national identifications relate to other identities, religious, ethnic, or cultural?

Contributors are sought for a collection of original essays examining the works of Australia's leading Aboriginal authors, Kim Scott and Alexis Wright. Both authors have won countless awards, including Australia's prestigious Miles Franklin Award, Scott in 2000 (Benang) and 2011 (That Deadman Dance), and Wright in 2006 (Carpentaria) and currently on the longlist for 2014 (The Swan Book).
