Contemporary re-imaginings of angelic and demonic creatures/characters tend to re-imagine the traditional Biblical roles in such complex and interesting ways. This panel seeks to examine the current film and television depictions of these figures.

As interest has increased recently in the idea of "Revelations," so has the portrayal of angels and demons in the film genre. Additionally, as the lines between good and evil blur in modern works due to the way in which current culture defines these terms, the often strict interpretation of angels as "good" and demons as "bad" have become somewhat ambiguous. Papers should focus on any aspect of angelic or demon depictions, including possession, in contemporary films.

Aging and Inheritance in Modernist Literature: October 6-9 2011 Buffalo NY

Sunday, April 10, 2011 - 10:56pm
full name / name of organization: 
Modernist Studies Association

David Rosen, in Power, Plain English, and the Rise of Modern Poetry, proclaims that "Modern poetry was never young." Can any similar claims be made for the Modernist novel? Is Modernism, conscious of the long cultural past that it draws on, symbolically "old"? This panel will explore the way that modernist authors take up the position of maturity or old age in order to confront their cultural inheritance. How does the older subject, steeped in the past herself, deal with the metaphorical and literal inheritances that connect the Modernist period with what came before? Is the mature subject in Modernist works world-weary, marked by conservatism and the renunciation of new possibilities?

Léon Gontran DAMAS: A Thorough Negritude
Born on March, 28th, 1912, the Martinico-Guyanese Négritude thinker and poet, Léon Gontran Damas, is the one idea man of Négritude whose works is overlooked. Indeed, only a handful of academic analyses can be found on his writing and contribution to Négritude. Yet, Damas is the very first one of the three Négritude Fathers – Damas, Césaire and Senghor – to ever have published works magnifying the Négritude's ideas. Additionally, the intensity of his poetry is the element which makes of Négritude a poignantly thorough poetic and political revolutionary movement.
