Female Editors Shaping Modernism

Thursday, May 6, 2010 - 7:00pm
Belinda Wheeler/ Midwest Modern Language Association

Female editors and their important roles shaping modernist texts are often overlooked by scholars. This panel presentation seeks to recover several important female editors of little magazines, books, fliers, zines, etc in the U.S. and abroad. Papers discussing minority women are especially welcome, as are papers discussing female editors who were also artists, poets, writers, etc. Because of the important recovery aspect of this panel presentation, it is hoped that presenters will provide conference attendees with supplementary materials, in the form of handouts or PowerPoint presentations, to situate these foundational female editors for the audience.

Revisiting Haiti in the Light / Works of Aimé Césaire

Haiti is the lost cradle and the pariah of the New World. Her disregarded epithets "La Perle des Antilles", the land of the Caribs / Tainos / Arawaks, the land of Emperors or the "Seminal Brawn of the Americas" are fast becoming the morphology of an obsolete lexicon for the nowadays writers, journalists, and reporters of the "Sensational Media."
