Proposals Requested for Modernism in British & World Literature: A (Re)consideration (updated)

Deadline for submissions:

January 15, 2024

Note on Updated Proposal:

We currently have most of the selections made, and essays in process, for a volume on re-considering Modernism with regard to British & world literature. We are, however, still looking for a small handful of high-quality proposals to fill out a few remaining chapters in the project. Our initial call was so successful that we decided to create two collections. The first one, on American Modernism, is currently under review by an academic publisher.

American Literature Association 2024 (Chicago, May 23 – 26, 2024): “Stevens and the Little Magazine”

The publication, circulation, and reception of little magazines made modernism happen. They set modernist poetry in motion, rattling and humming. The little magazine was a medial form, a technology, an infrastructure, a format, and a context for reading. Organized by the Wallace Stevens Society, this panel welcomes scholars to consider Stevens’s work in little magazines and to consider little magazines as mediators of, or resonators for, Stevens’s work. We seek abstracts that draw Stevensian poetics and criticism into contact with cultural and textual studies of the little magazine.

In today's world, we bear witness to epidemics and pandemics, the global climate change caused by human actions, as well as ecological collapse marked by floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. These events underscore the risks and challenges of a human-centered way of life. At the same time, they remind us of the need to reconsider our binary and hierarchical divisions between humans and the Earth, humans and animals, mind and body, nature and culture.

NeMLA 2024 - The Slow Cancellation of Futurism: Utopia, Dystopia, and the Imagined City

Influenced by Le Corbusier’s ‘Radiant City’, the Pruitt-Igoe housing projects in St. Louis were a modernist, utopian vision of urban renewal. However, they quickly slid into disrepair and in 1972 were partially demolished in a nationwide, televised spectacle. The failure of Pruitt-Igoe shows us that the dystopia is always necessarily contained within the utopia: despite the intentions of its architect Minoru Yamasaki, in planning the Pruitt-Igoe housing projects, it was always destined to be a vision of 'functional' racial segregation by its federal ideators. Although the edict of racial segregation was thrown out by the Supreme Court, the dystopian seed had been planted, and serves as an exemplar for what a dystopia truly is: a utopia unraveled.

Steven Spielberg’s A.I. Artificial Intelligence  (2001) was not a blockbuster in the sense of Jaws, E.T or Jurassic Park (the other films covered in this book series) – it did however make a heavy return on its near $100 million budget and received critical praise in the media. The film is the product of several authors: science fiction writer Brian Aldiss on whose short story ‘Supertoys Last All Summer Long’ (1969) the film was based; Stanley Kubrick, whose project it had been initially before passing it over to Spielberg in the wake of Jurassic park, Spielberg made and released the film two years after Kubrick’s death.

Spiritual Responses to American Literary Modernism~ Call for Chapter Proposals

 

At the end of 1920, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s first novel, This Side of Paradise, explored the crises of a new generation who had “grown up to find all Gods dead… all faiths in man shaken.” Scholars and theologians concur that American literature, like the culture at large, was undergoing a passage from a spiritual to a secular outlook throughout the 1920s and 30s. This transition was so dramatic and widespread that that the years between 1925-1935 have been termed “the American Religious Depression.” Indeed, many texts from these two decades present their own version of the larger cultural secularization thesis.

Thinking Modern Epic

Saturday, September 30, 2023

What can be said about epic today? Although M.M. Bakhtin famously declared the impossibility of epic in a modern, polyphonic world in 1941, the category has remained a dynamic source of artistic and critical interest. The works considered in studies like Franco Moretti’s Modern Epic (1994), Sneharika Roy’s Postcolonial Epic (2018)or Václav Paris’s Evolutions of Modernist Epic (2021) re-evaluate epic as a multifarious category capable of shedding light on the global, postcolonial, and postmodern condition of contemporary literature—either as a site of resistance or as a form of cultural domination. Yet even in its new, polyphonic forms, the idea of epic is rarely severed completely from its classical roots.
