This panel examines the points in "modernist" aesthetic production
where state power, imperial practice, and domestic life coincide.
In keeping with the emphasis of this year's conference on the

itself as a kind of archive -- one that, in a Benjaminian way, might
register both political power and its utopian alternatives.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
-Formal articulations of power (Political and narrative sovereignty);
