20th Century Literature & Culture Conference

February 23-25, 2006

Louisville, KY

Proposed Panel: Modernists Authors, Scientific Discourses

We are seeking a third paper for a proposed TCLC panel.

Currently, two papers look at how Modernist writers engage with contemporary
scientific discourses (eugenics, evolutionary theories) that attempt to
explain human behavior and development. These papers locate the site of
these discussions in rural America: Erskine Caldwell in the South and
Conrad Richter in the Ohio River Valley.

Although we are looking for a paper that seems to be a good "fit" for the
panel, we welcome any approach to this admittedly broad topic.
