Marxist critics from Adorno to Fredric Jameson have emphasized the revolutionary potential of modernism in its effort to project viable alternatives to capitalism. Indeed, one of the central goals of avant-garde artistic production is the radical break from existing norms, with experimentation serving as a means of liberation from artistic values and institutions deemed both oppressive and outmoded. But it is also, to varying degrees, a rhetoric of reform.

UPDATE MSA 18: Modernism's Planets (November 17-20, Pasadena, CA, USA)

Planets colliding: Spivak, Friedman, Dimock. The 'planet', as metaphor, object, method, problem, and more, has made multiple entries into the discipline of literary studies, all of which bear on the study of modernism, broadly conceived. Ecocritical, postcolonial, and comparative methods have been at the forefront of the planetary conversation, but, as the word 'planet' suggests, there is more than enough room for more planetary interventions.

Originally deriving from the Old French bordure (meaning "seam" and "edge of a shield"), in its geopolitical sense the term "border" was first used in Scotland in the 1530s. The Borders was indeed the name of the district adjoining the English boundary. Accordingly, over the centuries borders have been used to signal differences, separations, distinctions, discontinuities, the beginning of the other, as well as the need for protection and preservation. One could mention cultural, linguistic, political, social, gender borders, and the list could of course be much longer.

Abstracts are invited for an essay collection, Keats in Popular Culture.

Although Keats's literary legacy and influence on Victorian, Modernist and Post-Modernist literature has been explored in some depth, his impact on popular culture—particularly in the 21st century—has yet to be fleshed out. This collection seeks essays that examine Keats's significant presence in film, television, music, comics, video games, memes, science fiction, architecture and design, matters of taste, cultural criticism, popular science, psychology and philosophy.

Interested parties, please send 500-word abstracts by June 15, 2016 to Brian Bates at brbates@calpoly.edu.
