*Founded in 2009, the NYC Modernism Seminar is an interdisciplinary forum
for NYC-area scholars of the modernist period to read and discuss current
work in our field and other pertinent materials. Meetings:We meet
sporadically but regularly, informally but rigorously, usually discussing
one or two article/chapter/essay-length texts at each
session.Materials:Materials are suggested by seminar participants.  We
forward the readings to the group 1-2 weeks in advance of each session.
Please submit your suggestions and we will make a good-faith attempt to
schedule them all.  We mainly focus on recent academic articles in
professional journals, chapters from recent academic books, and re-readings
of parts or wholes of canonical critical works.  Other materials include
New York novels and films from the modernist period.  We occasionally
discuss a piece-finished or unfinished-with its author. *

*Facilitator Guidelines:*
*Those who submit materials should be ready to*
*1. provide an electronic version of the text*
*2. offer a brief oral summary (quite informal is quite fine)*
*3. facilitate discussion*
