CFP: Industrial Revolutions (MSA 17)

Modernist Studies Association 17th Annual Conference: “Modernism & Revolution”

Boston, MA (November 19 – 22, 2015)

This interdisciplinary panel seeks papers on any aspect of we might call an “industrial revolution” of modernity that will discuss its impact on modernist aesthetics and/or cultural production. Historical, theoretical, and critical approaches are all welcome, as are topics on Machine Age management and technology, corporatism and consumer capitalism, urban development, and mass communication media (including, but not limited to cinema). Authors may consider industrial context as a condition of modernist practices or as a thematic concern of modernist literature and the visual/performing arts.

By Sun., Apr. 5 (11:59 p.m.), please e-mail abstracts of up to 300 words to Will Scheibel at willscheibel@gmail.com. Please also include a 5 item bibliography and brief academic bio.
