Modernist Studies Association 14 * Las Vegas, NV * October 18-21, 2012
A series of excellent recent historical inquiries have helped establish the 20th century’s little architecture magazines as an increasingly valid scholarly focus. However, undertakings such as the “Clip/Stamp/Fold: The Radical Architecture of Little Magazines 196X-197X” exhibition project (Beatriz Colomina, Craig Buckley, et al., 2006-present) and *G: An Avant-Garde Journal of Art, Architecture, Design and Film, 1923-1926* (Detlef Mertins and Michael W. Jennings, 2010) also represent an emphasis on the 1920s and 60s, leaving the middle of the century relatively unexplored. This panel invites papers to help fill that gap by revealing the ways in which specific experimental periodicals participated in modern architecture praxis during the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
Proposals should be analytical, object-based studies of one or more little architecture magazines. Preference will be given to papers that address this year’s conference theme, “Modernism and Spectacle,” although any abstract that promises to provoke critical dialog will be seriously considered.
Send a 250-word abstract and a CV (as “.pdf” email attachments) to Sarah M. Dreller, firstname.lastname@example.org, by Monday, March 26.
