The Modernist Studies in Asia (MSIA) research network is proposing an affiliated panel at the MSA conference in Brooklyn, October 22–25.

Global and planetary modernisms tend to map different modernisms according to countries and continents, implicitly imposing a static, area studies–inflected order on these divergent and discrepant artists, texts, and practices. Against this tendency, for this panel we seek papers that trace surprising movements of modernism (broadly understood) within, across, and beyond Asia. Put another way, we are interested in accounts of how Asian modernism won't stay still.

*Deadline approaching* Edited Collection: Silenced Masculinities

Masculinities have been created and codified by every aspect of society, and have been embodied in everything from images of cave men to the Ken doll. Much of this creation depends upon the stifling of manifestations of masculinities that, over time, fluctuate in terms of social acceptability and utility. This volume will interrogate classic and contemporary cultural products in order to expose and explore how and why masculinities have been censored as “toxic” or are increasingly being silenced in other ways. The collection seeks to offer a mindful engagement with the rapidly evolving field of masculinity studies and the emergent crises facing masculinities of all kinds.

The word boredom has been in circulation since Ancient times, in the shape of a variety of synonyms --acedia, taedium vitae, horror loci, melancholy, ennui, spleen-- and bearing a theological stamp, since it was believed to be a demonic sin in the Christian tradition. In modernity, however, for the “enlightened subject” (Goodstein, 4), as a response to social and economic transformations, boredom has become a secular experience concerned with temporality, signifying loss of meaning and feeling of emptiness in the pace of modern life. In critical circles, boredom remains a hybrid phenomenon that brings together a variety of contradictory definitions.
