Dear Colleagues,

With apologies for any cross-posting, please find attached a Call for
Papers for the following:

 *‘**É**tant **d**onnés’:*

*Questioning the material and marginal givens of modernisms scholarship*

*(A Meta-Modernist Symposium)*

*12-13 April 2013
 *University College Cork          *
*Plenary Speakers:*
Dr Sara Crangle, University of Sussex
Dr Ruth Hemus, Royal Holloway

This is an invitation to interrogate how we think and do modernisms
scholarship. It is a call to examine assumptions about the materiality and
marginality of modernisms and an appeal to evaluate how criticism responds
to the format of formalism.

The aim of ‘Étant donnés’ is to provoke a critical (re)evaluation of the
lines we draw around and between modernist practices. Embracing a
chronologically broad conceptualization of literary, plastic and
performative ‘modernisms’, it seeks to generate self-reflexive scholarly
investigations across disciplines.

We welcome proposals for papers from students and scholars of modernism(s)
across the humanities, as well as from editors, archivists, translators,
publishers and curators of modernist cultural artefacts. Proposals for
challenges to the critical consensus on topics material or marginal will be
especially well received, as will proposals to treat the potential impact
of new technologies and reports of explorations from virgin and fallow
territories within (or around) the field.

Abstracts of 300 words can be sumitted to modernismsucc at gmail.com by
January 30, 2012.

Generously supported by the Irish Research Council 'New Foundations'
Scheme. For details please see the full CFP attached.


Best regards,
Dr Sarah Hayden
