[UPDATE] DEADLINE EXTENDED (20 January 2012) Generation M:Resetting Modernist Time (11-12 May 2012, Amsterdam)

Monday, December 12, 2011 - 8:21pm
Generation M: Resetting Modernist Time / 11-12 May 2012 / Amsterdam

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.
