At least two new collections—Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku’s Revise the Psalm, and Peter Kahn, Ravi Shankar, and Patricia Smith’s The Golden Shovel Anthology—will celebrate her centennial in 2017.

Proposals for papers, performances, and round table discussions might address questions of:

Modernist Studies Association Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 27, 2017

This is a CFP for a proposed panel at the Modernist Studies Association conference (MSA 19, Amsterdam) in August.  Details about the conference are available here: https://msa.press.jhu.edu/conferences/msa19/

The richness and complexity of modernist temporalities are well documented, and recent scholarship increasingly points to the interdependencies of time and space. Yet despite the fact that temporal fragmentation and rupture pervade modernist texts, little attention has been paid to the intervals and pauses in which time seemingly stops.
