DEADLINE EXTENDED: MSA 2018: Modernism and Religious Visual Culture

updated: 
Thursday, March 22, 2018 - 9:20am
Jack Dudley
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

This proposed panel for the Modernist Studies Association’s 2018 conference in Columbus, Ohio, November 8-11, seeks to expand on recent work in modernism and religion—from Pericles Lewis, Justin Neuman, and Matthew Mutter, among others—by exploring how modernist writers responded to, incorporated, or shaped religious visual culture, defined broadly. If modernist literary production was much more concerned with questions of religion than past scholarship has allowed, what role did religious visual culture play in shaping that engagement? Did modernist writers adapt or incorporate the religious visual culture of the early twentieth century? Did they shape it or produce new examples of it themselves?

Literary Politics Beyond Colonial Recognition

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 25, 2018

The goal of this session is to explore literature as an arena for articulating alternatives to colonial recognition. In recent years, scholars working across the humanities and social sciences, but especially in Indigenous and Black studies, have challenged the role of recognition in resisting regimes of racialization and empire. However, there is not yet a large body of scholarship grappling with the role of literature in crafting forms of politics that do not depend on the recognition paradigm. We believe that literature, with its emphasis on imaginative creation, is a site of cultural production that holds unique insights about what politics without recognition might be like.

“Multicultural Writers as Chroniclers of Culture: Strategies for Teaching Texts that Centralize the Marginalized," Multicultural Literature in the Classroom, Midwest MLA, November 15-18, 2018

Thursday, April 5, 2018

In an era rife with cultural anxieties, the role of the multicultural writer is more vital than ever, particularly when the cultural norms of those existing outside of mainstream culture are increasingly challenged, censured, or overshadowed by the biases of the majority.  Whether by documenting the disorienting experiences of immigrants seeking to establish new lives in places far from their countries of origin or the decades-long struggles of minorities to gain a firmer foothold in the societies around them, multicultural writers often serve as chroniclers of the cultures from which their characters—and they themselves—come, providing their readers with a deeper appreciation for the rich histories and traditions that shape those cultures and ideally hel

The concept of ‘identity’ has of late acquired much resonance inside and outside academia. Identity has become in today’s globalized world more fundamental than ever before to the endeavor of addressing theoretical and political issues relating to ‘nationality,’ ‘nation (-state) borders,’  ‘history,’ ‘ethnicity,’ and other, perhaps more urgent, issues of ethnic conflicts, immigration, and refugees. The complexity of each of these entities and the interplay of most of them point, together, to the insufficiencies apparent in those ‘fixed’ understandings of the concept of identity. Fixed, or essentialized, views of identity put emphasis on roots, continuity, tradition, and timelessness... .
