Dear Colleagues,

The Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at Harvard is
pleased to announce that on Tuesday, 9 October, at 6:00 p.m. Gregory Castle
will speak on:

*“Modernism and Misrecognition: Yeats & the Temporalities of the Irish
Revival”*

The presentation will take place in the Kresge Room (Room 114) of the
Barker Center.

Gregory Castle, Professor of English at Arizona State University, has
published widely on literary modernism, humanistic theory, and postcolonial
writing. His critical studies of modernism include *Reading the Modernist
Bildungsroman* (2006) and *Modernism and the Celtic Revival* (2001). He is
also the author of *The Blackwell Guide to Literary Theory* (2007) and the
editor of *Postcolonial Discourses: An Anthology* (2001) and* The
Encyclopedia of Literary and Cultural Theory, Volume I, 1900-1966* (2011).
The* Literary Theory Handbook* is currently in press. His essays and
reviews have appeared in *Modernism/Modernity*, *The James Joyce Quarterly*,
*Theatre Journal*, and *Twentieth Century Literature*, among other
journals. His talk draws on his work in progress, a study tentatively
entitled *Modernism and the Temporalities of Irish Revival, 1878-1938*.

There is free parking near the HHC at the Broadway Garage, on Felton
between Broadway and Cambridge Street. Just tell the attendant that you're
participating in an event at the HHC. Normally the attendant is welcoming,
as long as it's after 5:00 p.m., even if we are erroneously not on the good
list.

We hope you'll be able to attend the session, which, as always, includes
discussion after the presentation.

Future sessions of the Modernism Seminar this academic year:

Tuesday, 13 November, 6:00 p.m. (Barker 133): Jonathan Foltz, Boston
University, a talk focusing on cinematic formalism, from his book
manuscript on modernism and cinema.

Spring 2013 speakers: Hilary Schor, USC; Lisa Fluet, College of the Holy
Cross; and Hillary Chute, University of Chicago
