Call for Papers

Harlem Spectacle (MSA 14)

Matthew Hannah / University of Oregon

In the chapter "Spectacles in Color" in his autobiography The Big Sea, Langston Hughes describes the famous Hamilton Club Lodge Ball as the "Strangest and gaudiest of all Harlem spectacles." For Hughes, the ball where "men dress as women and women dress as men" is representative of Harlem life in the 1920's. After positioning the drag ball within the broader context of Harlem life—including Countee Cullen's wedding and the church services of Rev. Dr. Becton—Hughes comes to the conclusion that "Harlem likes spectacles of one kind or another."

Spectacular Language and Projected Verse (4 April; MSA Las Vegas, 18 October 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, March 14, 2012 - 12:02am
Mike Chasar/Willamette University

Panel seeking papers on spectacular forms of language and poetry during the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries in American or European contexts. We are especially interested in work that addresses the intersection of language, literature, and technology in the public or entertainment spheres. How, for example, does the development of proto-cinematic projection devices, cinematic technology, and now digital technology affect the way we encounter and experience language? Are only commercial forms of language broadcast in illuminated fashion to the public, or have there been literary instances of such "projected verse," thus putting a spin on Charles Olson's phrase (or setting it reeling)?

Hegel and Modernism

This panel takes up a simple, but perhaps exacting question: What can the study of Hegel contribute to our understanding of modernism now?
