In keeping with the theme of "Structures of Innovation," this panel seeks papers that demonstrate an innovation on rather than a rupture from tradition, and question the so-called radical break from nineteenth-century standards for form, content, and the place of poetry or fiction in society. This panel welcomes submissions that demonstrate concrete connections between modernist American or British texts and the nineteenth-century through formal, political, and cultural modes of inquiry.
