MSA 2023: Proposed session on Queer Modernist Travel
MSA 2023 Proposed session on Queer Modernist Travel
Organized by Galen Bunting (Northeastern University) and Laura Tscherry (Indiana University)
The figure of travel drives modernism: motion, migration, and mobility are enduring markers of modernist writing across genres. Much has been written about the urban flâneur, American émigrés to Paris, and modernist writers’ interest in “primitivism.” This panel seeks to expand the conversation by paying particular attention to queer modernist travels and travelers at the intersection of gender, race, and disability.
