This panel seeks to explore representations of intuition in Modernist literature. As developments in technology, medicine, industry, and other areas seemed to rely on and value solely cognitive forms of sense making, many Modernist writers focused on intuitive knowledge as a possible remedy to the problems of the early 20th century. Abstracts that explore representations of alternative forms of knowing more broadly are welcome.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 400 words to Dr. Ellen McWhorter at mcwhortere@merrimack.edu by September 15, 2012.
