PEACE PANEL at CEA:

Morality, Militarism and Ante-Modernity

 

38th Annual College English Association Conference

New Orleans, Louisiana, April 12-14, 2007

 

One of the key features of conservative politics is that it insistently
evokes a nostalgic, sentimental past as the norm. In other words, its
strategy in dealing with the modern is to hate it and prefer the pre-modern
(the ante-modern).
