"Moving Modernisms" aims to reconsider our
understanding of modernism by situating the modernist aesthetic as an affective
response to a world where a sense of place and spatial relations are undergoing
fundamental change. The word "moving" can refer to a change of
position or location, feelings and emotions that touch one and the impetus to
act or make something happen.

In a modernist context, the notion of moving calls to mind the interplay
between modernism as an era of changing relations to space, the emergence of a
new sense of affect and a wider engagement with the world through writing as
action. In the context of the MSA conference, papers that place an emphasis on
spectacle are especially welcome.

Please email an abstract (250 words) and a short bio to
wendy.knepper at brunel.ac.uk by April 5th.
