Graphic Content Warning: Graphing Explicit Modernist Bodies (MSA 2018 Columbus)

updated: 
Saturday, December 9, 2017 - 4:33pm
Modernist Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 30, 2018

“The natural object,” Pound writes, “is always the adequate symbol.” Nevertheless, Modernist literature is plotted along bodily representations that often seem far from the realities of their correlative “natural object.” This panel will consider the tension between Modernism’s representative strategies and the gendered objects that Modernist writers “graph,” focusing particularly on Modernist representations of female, queer, non-white, disabled, and otherwise marginalized bodies. How do the literary strategies of Modernist writers complicate, limit, or make space for bodies, or bodily functions, that might have been given a “Graphic Content Warning”?

Post-Truth: An Interdisciplinary Exploration

University of Portsmouth

March 24th, 2018

Keynote: Professor Steve Fuller (University of Warwick)

 

Post-Truth, as a concept, seemed to exemplify 2016. The term, in fact, was appointed word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries, underscoring its pre-eminence. The phenomenon is characterized by notions of ‘fake news’, ‘alternative facts’, and ‘false information’, but is this simply academic residue from the postmodern debate trickling down to its broader expression in social media?
