Reading Beyond the Nation: Modern Periodical Communities
How do artists and writers define their political and artistic affiliations through magazines? How do journals ranging from Der Dada to Tropiques position themselves internationally? This seminar will address how magazines serve to gather, define, and reflect communities formed in response to early twentieth century geopolitical shifts. Born of modern print culture, the periodical allowed for unprecedented communication across national borders, functioning as a collaborative space and a site for new forms of identification. While the seminar will focus on modernist magazines in Europe and the Americas, submissions on international themes are welcome.
The American Comparative Literature Association is going to be held at Brown University March 29th to April 1st, 2012.
