New Ways of Thinking About Modernism and the Left

 

Scholars have explored modernism’s relationship both with the political right, broadly construed (fascism, nationalism, etc.) and the political left (feminism, pacifism, and Marxism in its time, how it anticipates disability studies in our time, etc.). In the spirit of MSA 2020’s stream topics on crip modernisms, activism, and environmentalism, this panel explores new paths for scholarship on modernism and the left.
