Photo. Graphic. Modernism.


Panel proposal for MSA Columbus, November 8-11 2018


This panel considers how working with photography reshapes how modernist writers conceived of graphic or violent images. Taking Virginia Woolf’s decision to leave the photos of “dead bodies and ruined houses” out of her feminist, anti-war essay, Three Guineas (1938), as a starting point, this panel welcomes papers that interrogate the relationship between literature and photography, particularly as it relates to images of violence, war, and dispossession.

Jill Carroll, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that all instructors use a “teaching persona,” even those who unconsciously adopt what she calls a “default” persona. “If it [the default persona] works for you, consider yourself lucky,” she writes, “but if it doesn’t, the results can be messy.” This panel intends to address our teaching personae, and asks that participants consider the following questions (or any other questions that seem relevant to the issue at hand):

-Do you purposefully craft a persona for yourself, and if so, how have you gone about it?

-If at multiple universities, do you sample different approaches or personas?

-Who or what are your influences?
