Conference: MSA 2019, Toronto (October 17 – 20)Panel Title: How Red Is Modernism?Organizers: Matthew Gannon and Tavid Mulder The perennial issue of the politics of modernism is in season once again. We might now finally be in a position to leave behind the intransigent Cold War opposition of political realism and apolitical modernism, opening the possibility of reevaluating modernist politics. Mark Steven's recent book Red Modernism, for instance, makes concrete historical connections between leftist social and political events and the practices and theories of literary modernism.
