At the turn of the twentieth century, modernity positioned itself as an unsettling force that changed traditional modes of communication, facilitated new forms of transportation, and transformed social experiences.  Modernity also prompted technological advances that disrupted political/cultural boundaries through war, empire expansion, economic migration, and the like.  Within her Empire, England's colonies felt the longing of emancipation through the rise of nationalist movements in Ireland and India.  Eventually, these movements spread across Britain's African and Caribbean holdings, as well.  The RMMLA English Literature since 1900 panel welcomes presentation proposals of no more than 250 words that explore any aspect of influence that decolonization had on British Literature for the October 10-12, 2019, conference in El Paso, Texas.  Please email proposals as a pdf or doc attachment to krista.rascoe@tccd.edu by March 15, 2019.
