The Graduate Student Association of the University of Wisconsin-Madison English Department is pleased to invite papers for the 8th annual MadLit conference to be held March 1-3, 2012. This year's theme, "Visual Memory: Mind, Monument, Metaphor" seeks to investigate the role that vision plays in the creation, recollection, and use of memory as well as to challenge the relationship between optic experience and the visual idioms often used to describe these processes.
Are Modernists aware of themselves as Modernists? Certainly, there is consciousness of shared enterprise – taking part in a "grrrreat littttterary period," as one of Pound's memorable eruptions has it. Yet, even before period or style, comes the inevitable frame of shared generation. Before the "simultaneous order" of "the whole of literature of Europe from Homer," as Eliot has it, the talented author must feel "his own generation in his bones." The concept of generation – in the bones, beneath the skin, consumed and digested – serves to provide modernism with a vital undercarriage drawn from the human lifespan that continues to shape not least our own scholarly conceptions of "the movement," and hence merits detailed examination.
