MSA 14 (Oct. 18-21, 2012)--Proposed Panel on Modernism and Psychology

full name / name of organization: 
Jen Spitzer and Meg Hammond / New York University

We are looking for a third contributor to round out a proposed panel on modernism and psychology for the 2012 Modernist Studies Association conference in Las Vegas. Papers for the panel will either explore the role(s) that psychological theories and practice played in the creation of modernist art or use recent psychology to illuminate some aspect of modernism. Although we are particularly interested in papers that treat schools of psychology other than Freudian psychoanalysis (such as behaviorism, social psychology, cognitive psychology, or self psychology), we also welcome papers that examine non-orthodox Freudian approaches. We especially hope to see proposals for papers on visual art, film, theater, or architecture. Please send 250-word abstracts and a short cv to both and by Monday, March 19. Please note if you are not already a member of the MSA you will have to join for the 2012-2013 membership year (starting July 1, 2012) in order to participate.
