The traditional account of Anglo-American modernism trumpets its
masculinism and impersonality. How do modernist women writers attempt to
prove their intellectual and professional validity, and what strategies do
they employ to live up to, mock, or refuse these (self-)definitions?
Focuses of papers could include the use of irony and word play; women in
the Harlem Renaissance; literary allusion and authority; middlebrow
modernism, and the subcultures of publishing. Please E-mail paper abstracts
(250 to 500 words) to Catherine Keyser ( by
