[Updated] Proposed panel on New Modernist Studies in the Commonwealth MSA 14, Las Vegas (Oct. 18–21, 2012)

With the advent of New Modernist Studies came a call to rethink the assumption that modernist aesthetic innovations are "first produced in the great culture capitals of Europe and the United States and then exported to…colonies and postcolonial nations … where they exist in diluted and imitative form as 'trickle down' effects" (Friedman). However, the modernisms of Canada and Australia remain marginalized within modernist studies, and only preliminary work has been done in response to this call. Re-examining Commonwealth modernisms through the lens of New Modernist Studies has the potential to reconfigure them not as belated and mimetic, but as distinctive and localized modernisms that emerge in response to their specific cultures and geographies.

MSA 14 (Oct. 18-21, 2012)--Proposed Panel on Women Modernists and Reactionary Politics

updated: 
Thursday, March 8, 2012 - 10:05am
full name / name of organization: 
Modernist Studies Association

For at least two decades, scholars have addressed the striking convergence between modernist writers and reactionary, right-wing, or fascist regimes. From Andrew Hewitt's Fascist Modernism and Fredric Jameson's Wyndham Lewis: the Modernist as Fascist to Leon Surette's just-published Dreams of a Totalitarian Utopia: Literary Modernism and Politics, critics have sought to determine why so many modernist innovators were drawn to right-wing or reactionary politics. Yet the discussion has still largely been confined to the political leanings of male modernists, adverting to a fairly standard set of usual suspects: Eliot, Yeats, Pound, Lewis, Marinetti.
