updated: 
Monday, May 5, 2008 - 2:39pm
John Lennon

This panel will examine Modernism and Left politics. A member of our
panel, unfortunately, will be unable read his paper and so we have a last
minute opening for proposals. We currently have a paper that explores
depression-era transnational radical film theory and one that reexamines
the radical Wobbly rail rider in John Dos Passos’ U.S.A.

We are seeking a third paper that examines the way that Left politics
inform/transform the modernist text. Issues dealing with critical
evaluation, production and consumption are welcome.
