CFP:  Modernist Spectacles of Destruction

MSA 14, Las Vegas, October 18-21, 2012


Much of modernist art and writing features or reflects upon images of
destruction, those of war and mass violence being primary among these.  As
advances in film, radio, and photography made it possible to bring
representations of such destruction home to viewers, listeners, and readers,
questions of the ethical use of these spectacles as aesthetic commodities
arose, and these dilemmas were often foregrounded in modernist work/art.  We
seek a third panelist for a panel focused on the ethics and aesthetics of
modernist depictions of destruction, whether written or visual, poetic,
narrative, musical, or performative.  Please send 300 word abstracts to Mark
Hussey (mhussey at pace.edu) and Brenda Helt (helt0010 at umn.edu) by March 26th.
