Destination Deferred: Modernist Postponements

We are seeking papers for a panel that will explore postponements in all their Modernist iterations for the fourteenth annual Modernist Studies Association conference. The following topics would be welcome, but potential contributors are certainly not limited to this list:

+ authorial postponements
+ textual and narratological deferral
+ historical and political positions
+ the unfinished or revised manuscript
+ genre theory
+ mediums including but beyond literature (film, art, etc.)
+ feminist studies
+ global/contemporary Modernism
+ psychological causes/effects of postponement

300-word abstracts and CVs should be sent by email to Molly O'Donnell at no later than March 25, 2012.
