MSA 11: Modernist Lies and the Lying Modernists Who Tell Them
(with apologies to Al Franken)

What do modernists lie about?
What constitutes a lie in a modernist text?
How (rhetorically, formally) do modernists lie?

This panel seeks to interrogate the language of lying in modernist texts.
Papers would ideally go beyond identifying instances of lying to consider
how lies influence the structure, meaning, or reception of a text. Proposals
especially welcome that address questions of genre or boundaries between
genres. Please send a short abstract (300 words) and bio to Jessica Weare,
jweare at stanford.edu, by April 30th.
