Twentieth-Century Studies / Modernist Studies Without Modernism


The project of developing new and better frameworks for the study of twentieth-century literature continues! I have been part of a number of events related to this project; most recently Colin Gillis and I co-organized a seminar at the American Comparative Literature Association conference on Institutions of Periodization more generally. In the past we have also convened two panels at MSA 12 on “Modernist Studies Without Modernism,” as well as a 2009 MSA seminar under the same title. If you are interested in joining an electronic mailing list for twentieth-century studies or in participating in future work on this subject, please contact me.
