[UPDATE} Panel on "The Modernist Room,"* 29 Aug - 1 Sept, Brighton UK -- MSA conference

Modernist Studies Association

According to Frederic Jameson, the Modernist novel abandoned the panoramic cityscapes of the 19th century realist novel and devised "strategies of inwardness." As Brigitte Munier suggests, the early-20th century protagonist experienced the city "locked within his room, carried away by the cries of shopowners whom Flaubert and Nerval would have encountered walking down the street." The Modernist room, in these accounts, appears to function as a refuge from a confusing public terrain.
