Paper proposals are invited for a proposed panel on Modernist
Revision at the 2006 Modernist Studies Association Conference in
Tulsa, OK from October 19-22.

Revision is a basic aspect of writing, but it assumed a special
prominence during the modernist period. T. S. Eliot dedicated The
Waste Land to his co-reviser, Ezra Pound. Henry James revised his
entire ouvre at the end of his life. When Virginia Woolf revised the
proofs of her novels, she revised one for the British edition and one
for the American edition.

This panel invites papers on the theory and/or practice of modernist
revision. In line with the MSA's theme—"Out of the archive"—I am
particularly interested in papers that speak to issues of
bibliography and textual criticism.

Please send a one-page abstract and brief bio to James Murphy at by April 14, 2006.
