New York Institute of Technology's 8th Annual Interdisciplinary Conference:
March 2, 2012
NYIT's Manhattan Campus
16 W. 61st St. (12th Floor Auditorium)
This interdisciplinary conference will look back on New York City of roughly 100 years ago, emphasizing the city's relation to concepts of modernism and modernity --considered broadly. We invite participants from all fields of study to focus on New York as (perhaps) a principal site of modernist visual art, literature, society, and politics, and to propose ways that the cultural life of the early twentieth century continues to influence the metropolis today.
