Tuesday, February 8, 2011 - 12:08pm
Modern Horizons Journal

For the April 2011 edition of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various intellectual, artistic, emotional, and political manifestations of kitsch in our time.

In our current culture, the word 'kitsch' has come to be associated often with tacky souvenirs and cheap trinkets. However, there is a thicker sense given to the word by various thinkers and authors in the twentieth century, even if it is regularly connected with an idea of culture.

CFP: Modernist Ethics (MSA 13 Buffalo, NY; 6-9 October, 2011; deadline April 1 2011)
I am seeking papers that address how modernist fiction articulates ethics, challenges existing ethical models, and explores areas of ethical ambiguity. Possibilities:
• tensions or continuities between early-twentieth-century ethicists (e.g., Spencer, Moore) and the ethics of modernist fiction
• tensions or continuities between modernist fiction and contemporary ethics (e.g., Levinas, Derrida, Badiou, Zizek; or Nussbaum, Rorty, et al.)
• the ethics of particular writers or even of particular works – what do they posit, what leave unsaid or indicate is unsayable?
