Across the nation, institutions of higher learning are facing radical changes from many angles, whether they be budgetary, curricular, structural, or otherwise. As educational professionals, it is our task to manage this whirlwind of redirection with aplomb and finesse while maintaining a high level of success in our primary areas of concern: our students. How do we remain innovative and focused during these times of upheaval? How do we identify and strengthen our identities as professionals? Additionally, how to we assist our students in doing the same as they shape their personal and professional identities, particularly in developmental classrooms?

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.
