Modernism, Blackness, and Futurity

Monday, April 21, 2014 - 8:56pm
Modernist Studies Association (MSA) 16: Confluence & Division (November 6-9, 2014)

This panel speaks to long-standing modernist questions about the individual's relationship with time. High modernist writers from James Joyce, to T.S. Eliot, to Virginia Woolf rightfully urge us to reconsider the role time plays in our conceptions of identity. Such authors experiment with an illegible and/or insecure future, which, consequently, opens up the present as a spatio-temporal dimension to be thoroughly explored and excavated. Virginia Woolf's novel, Mrs. Dalloway, famously illustrates the notion of an incomprehensible future and how one lives his or her life under these conditions.
