Composing Live(s): Writing the Self and the Other within the Disciplines
March 25, 2011, 9:00-4:00 Oxford, Ohio

"To withdraw myself from myself has ever been my sole, my entire, my sincere motive in scribbling at all." —Lord Byron

Writing about lives, writing that lives, or writing that comes to us live from an immediate, connected source shapes how we as scholars and teachers conceive of ourselves and others. Writing works within and out of academia to continually (re)define what is and is not important, what is and is not canonized, and what is and is not ignored within many discourse communities.

[NEW DEADLINE] Impersonality beyond "Tradition" (MSA, Oct. 6-9, Buffalo, NY)

Claire Laville/Modernist Studies Association

Impersonality is usually linked to "Tradition and the Individual Talent," in which T.S. Eliot famously declares, "The progress of an artist is a continual self-sacrifice, a continual extinction of personality." For this panel, I am seeking papers that dislodge the impersonal from Eliot's vision of a cohesive European canon. This may mean sidestepping Eliot and his legacy entirely or reconsidering its premises. Where can modernists find an account of the "process of depersonalization"? Could it be narrated in the first person? Does the impersonal have a history? a future?
