"Modernism and Internationalism" (Proposed Panel)
Modernist Studies Association, 4th Annual Conference,
University of Wisconsin--Madison, 10/31-11/03/02
Papers sought to complete a 3-4 person panel which would examine the presence of internationalism, as a mode of cultural and political practice, in literature, theory, history, and the arts between 1890 and WWII. Modernism has long been seen in terms of its cosmopolitanism in biographical, political, and artistic contexts. A recent surge of critical interest in "cosmopolitics," historical and contemporary, offers us new ways of thinking about the interconnection of collectivism, anti-imperialism, and nationalism in the period, as well as the period's major and underexamined figures, movements, and artistic forms. It's my hope that this panel can extend this line of inquiry toward a delineation of the many forms of worldliness--reactionary, state-based, liberal, progressive, radical, utopian--and their representations in the modernist period. The MSA is dedicated to exploring the aesthetics and politics of the fin-de-siecle-to-WWII
period from a variety of disciplinary, archival, and methodological perspectives, and across a range of national traditions and contexts.
Email submissions only. Please send 1-pg. titled abstracts, with c.v., as attachments. Queries welcome. Participants must join the MSA.
