CFP: Modernism & Fascism (11/1/05; PCA/ACA, 4/12/06-4/15/06)
CALL FOR PAPERS:
THE MODERNIST ATTRACTION TO FASCISM
SPECIAL SESSION FOR LITERATURE AND POLITICS, ACA, APRIL 12TH-15TH, 2006.
FOR THE AMERICAN CULTURE ASSOCIATION
PCA/ACA ANNUAL MEETING, April 12th-15th, 2006
ATLANTA MARRIOTT MARQUIS, ATLANTA, GEORGIA
I'm interesting in putting together a special session within the
Literature and Politics session of the ACA in the spring, focusing on
early 20th-century Fascism in the Arts, particularly Modernism and
Fascism in its various manifestations. I am most interested in the
question of the political attraction of fascism for modernist writers
during the early part of the century, but am willing to read
abstracts pertaining to fascism and the arts in other contexts.
Modernists on this list might include William Butler Yeats, Ezra
Pound, T.S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, D.H. Lawrence; so you can see that
the idea of "fascism" itself might be defined in various ways as well
(for some these writers were not directly connected to right wing
political movements). I would also be interested in papers that
challenge the common assumptions about the right-wing leanings of
such modernist authors.
