[UPDATE} Panel on "The Modernist Room,"* 29 Aug - 1 Sept, Brighton UK -- MSA conference

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 5:38pm
Modernist Studies Association

According to Frederic Jameson, the Modernist novel abandoned the panoramic cityscapes of the 19th century realist novel and devised "strategies of inwardness." As Brigitte Munier suggests, the early-20th century protagonist experienced the city "locked within his room, carried away by the cries of shopowners whom Flaubert and Nerval would have encountered walking down the street." The Modernist room, in these accounts, appears to function as a refuge from a confusing public terrain.

[UPDATE][MLA Session] Global Art, Western American Context

Wednesday, February 20, 2013 - 5:02pm
Max Despain / Western Literature Association

Chicago, the 2014 MLA conference location, inspires thought about the individual experience of works of art, and, as the Chicago Art Institute describes: "the irreplaceable embodiments of the creative impulse from all times and areas," within the specific context of the American West. From elaborate collections found in museums such as the Chicago Art Institute to the somewhat simple act of reading Shakespeare in a small Western town, how does experiencing art removed from its original context and placed in an utterly different location and time influence original Western American artistic production?

300 word abstracts and bios by March 6, 2012, please.
