The Centre for Modernist Studies
University of Sussex
Responding to recent scholarly constellations of modernism, affect and intimacy this one-day symposium, hosted by the Centre for Modernist Studies at University of Sussex, seeks to explore new ways of thinking about modernist feeling and modernist intimacies. Are there such things as "modernist feelings"? How might different modernist narratives of emotion in psychoanalysis, literary theory, philosophy and medicine be made to collide, disrupt and form new points of contact? How do modernist bodies come together and apart?
Neo-Victorian Studies is currently soliciting scholarly and creative work for its 2013 general issue. The editors welcome articles from established and early career scholars and creative artists on any topic related to the exploration of nineteenth-century legacies from twentieth/twenty-first-century perspectives.
