Modernist Misogynies
This panel will address the various roles misogyny plays in the formation of
modernism, in particular texts, in the broader cultural movement, and in
subsequent canon-formation.
Possible topics might include:
-What forms does misogyny take in work by modernist writers, particularly or
generally, and how does misogyny during the modernist period differ from
that expressed in other historical periods?
-How have and how should feminists respond to or redefine the modernist
-Are there modernist masculinities that do NOT depend on renouncing or
otherwise vilifying the feminine?
-Engagements with major critics (Gilbert and Gubar, Suzanne Clark, Judith
Fetterly, Ann Douglass, etc.) who have dealt with these questions
-(How) has the development of masculinity studies changed the ways we think
about misogyny in the modernist period?
-(how) has the recuperation of work by women modernists changed the ways we
think about misogyny in the modernist period?
