The Modernist Studies Association is thrilled to announce that the submission portal for our upcoming conference in Brooklyn, NY, October 26-29, 2023, is NOW OPEN at The conference theme for 2023 is STREETS. New York City has long been a stage for what Marshall Berman called “modernism in the streets,” a modernism that encompasses the speed and scale of modernity at large and the energies of migrant communities and social movements that stake their claims at street level. MSA 2023 will consider the modernist street as a place where demands for new worlds have become legible in countless creative ways. The first deadline (for seminar proposals) is March 17. All other proposals (for papers, panels, roundtables, digital exhibits/posters, and workshops) are due April 7.
