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

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.

Among scholarly, trade, and popular texts, food has been addressed as (among other frames) a luxurious preoccupation, a class marker, and an overdue opportunity to give attention to a key cultural artifact. Regardless of the approach taken, the presence of food as a topic if not an heuristic notably has increased. Scholars use food as a lens whereby, e.g., issues of agricultural production (Winslow, 2011) and social exclusivity (McCord, 2011) are examined. Trade publications address acts of food preparation as craft, art, and profession. Popular texts capitalize on food as both a consumer product and a marketing technique.
