MSA: Global Modernisms and the Graphic

Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz's field-defining article, "The New Modernist Studies," turns ten in 2018. Despite the fact that the article takes up new media as a key topic, and although it was published just after ground-breaking work in the "visual turn" of literary studies by Mary Lou Emery (Modernism, the Visual, and Caribbean Literature, 2007), W.J.T. Mitchell (Picture Theory, 2005), Michael North (Camera Works, 2005), and Mark Wollaeger (Modernism, Media, and Propaganda, 2006), theories and discussions of global modernism have since focused considerably more energy on modernism's geographic and temporal dimensions than its relation to the graphic.

Perspectives on Music Production: Gender in Music Production



Call for Contributions



Deadline for proposals: 9th April 2018

The editors welcome abstracts for chapters in a forthcoming Routledge edited volume entitled Gender in Music Production. The scope for contributions are listed below.

The collection instead repositioned magical realism as an international form used by writers from across the globe and to depict a variety of historical contexts. However, Netflix’s critically acclaimed Narcos (2015), a biopic of Pablo Escobar, firmly attributes magical realism to the Latin American context once again, opening with the statement:
