Attention to texts in various Pacific Rim languages welcome.
CFP for Panel on Queer Modernism/Modernism Queered: This panel is based on last year's cancelled seminar, "Rethinking Modernism and Sexuality."
Explores the "dynamic and performative process of dialogic engagement" (Katherine Lawson) as a collaborative, compositional methodology.

Please send 250-word abstracts to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline: 3/15/12.
How will national cultures survive in the digital age? Will they be subsumed in the centripetal pull of global monoculture? Or will counter-currents and hybrid combinations thrive in a transmedia world? 2012 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of RTÉ TV – Ireland's public television network charged with broadcasting the nation to itself: 'a window and mirror to an evolving nation'. This year also sees the end of analogue television transmission in Ireland, marking another milestone in the nation's switchover to digital. Beyond technological advances, this switch from existing communication models to convergent networks may well have a far-reaching impact on the idea of the nation as a finite and highly centralized construct.
Seeking papers for a panel exploring the interconnections of aesthetic and economic debt. What exactly does the trope of "literary debt" owe to the economic mind? Are economic narratives, e.g.- the narrative of money as "value itself," indebted to aesthetic principles?
Papers welcome on topics such as the post-collapse relevance of Harold Bloom's theory of literary influence, Marc Shell's deconstructions of the "Art & Money" binary, and Christian Marazzi's notion of the increasingly "linguistic" nature of capital.
Send 300-word abstract and brief bio by 15 March 2012 to Mark Schiebe, CUNY Graduate Center (email@example.com)
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.
