How and why do modernist writers and artists write with images or pictorialize with words, whether in experimental literature and fine arts, or in popular arts such as children╒s literature or comics? What connections might such aesthetics have with ideologies of biopower, cosmopolitanism, primitivism, futurism, or with other cultural discourses? Abstracts are solicited for an MSA 13 panel of three to four papers. Send a paragraph abstract and scholarly bio of 2 to 3 sentences to Glenn Willmott at by April 7, 2011.
