Mobilization and Modernism: World War I and American Literature

Although much scholarship on World War I and modernism focuses on European
contexts, the war radically impacted America. This proposed panel at
Modernist Studies Association will explore the social and artistic
consequences of World War I in the United States. Potential paper topics
may include but are not limited to World War I and the New Negro
Renaissance, American writers on the battlefield, mobilization and
nativism, war and feminism, and cultural ramifications of the war.

The Modernist Studies Association will meet November 13-16, 2008 in
Nashville, Tennessee. For more information on the conference, visit
