This proposed panel seeks to examine the phenomenon of late modernism - is there such a thing, and how do we define it? Is it an analytically useful concept or should we think of another way of categorizing literature written after high modernism. Are there particular technological, social or political values that underpin late modernist writing? Can the concept of late modernism be extended beyond the Anglo-American world? Papers looking at either late modernism in a theoretical perspective or evaluations of individual late modernist authors are encouraged.
Please send a proposal (300 words) and a brief bio by 15 March to Marius.Hentea@UGent.be.
