MSA 2018: Modernism at Ease

Friday, February 2, 2018 - 11:41am
Modernist Studies Association Annual Conference, Columbus, Ohio, November 8-11, 2018
deadline for submissions:

Modern art and literature have long been considered challenging or “difficult,“ either formally or topically. Recent investigactions into the labor of the work of art and the industries of modern culture have also tended to emphasize the serious work undertaken by the modern artist in the pursuit of their career. This panel welcomes proposals for papers that will take a different tack, engaging with scholarship that probes modernist culture‘s mechanisms for non-productive labor and leisure. We hope to generate thinking that explores the modernist party, the relationship between modernist art and tourism, hobbies, games, and sports, bar and cafe culture, and unprofessionalism more generally.
