November 14-19: News and Views

Welcome to “News and Views”, a newsletter from BAMS that will bring you updates on publications, conferences, and other tidbits from modernist studies around the globe, direct to your inbox, every Monday.

We hope you enjoy this round-up, and please do send us your news to share: whether you’ve got an article in print, a new job to shout about, or just spotted a great exhibition that your colleagues might enjoy.

Make it New (Work in Modernist Studies)

Registration is still open for our postgraduate conference on December 10th. This will also include our AGM, so please get in touch if there’s something you’d like to be put on the agenda.

The Modernist Review

A reminder for those who haven’t yet seen it of our sister site, The Modernist Review. It’s been designed with modernist postgrads and ECRs in mind, so please have a look and consider submitting. Ideal for those little ‘offcuts’ of work that need a loving home.


The MSA may be over for now, but you can still catch up with it on #MSA18. Plans are underway for next year’s conference, to be held in Amsterdam.
