****This is a CFP for MLA 2021*** In Habeas Viscus (2014), Alexander Weheliye invokes metonyms of Nazism, European colonialism, and American slavery, revising Paul Gilroy to argue, "the concentration camp, the colonial outpost, and the slave plantation suggest three of many relay points in the weave of modern politics, which are neither exceptional nor comparable, but simply relational." However, where Gilroy and Weheliye are particularly interested in how colonial practices preceded and underwrote fascism, they also raise the question of how fascism relates and returns to America. Over the past six years, beginning with Christopher Vials's Haunted by Hitler (2014), there have been a number of significant scholarly works that

“THIS THING OF DARKNESS”

ONE-DAY CONFERENCE – 15 JUNE, 2020

Research Centre VALE, Faculté des Lettres de Sorbonne Université
We seek papers for a panel at this year's Modernist Studies Assocation annual meeting (Brooklyn, NY, October 22-25) entitled "House Styles: Pulp, Periodicals, Publishing." From the little magazines that launched a slew of modernist authors' careers to the grassroots periodicals and zines of the 1970s–80s that reintroduced forgotten or out-of-print writings, periodicals have consistently served as counter- and sub-cultural venues for literary production. This panel will consider the intersections between print cultural forms, mechanisms of dissemination, and the constitution of evolving twentieth-century literary canons and tastes.
