Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Tuesday, October 21, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Sam Alexander speak on
the topic:

*“Middle*
*town, U. S. A.: *

*Social Science and Modernist Form in Dos Passos's Trilogy"*


 The presentation will take place in Room 133 of the Barker Center.


 *Sam Alexander* is an assistant professor of English at Endicott College.
He was the managing editor of the Modernism Lab at Yale University from
2006-2011. His essay on Joyce and the Irish census appeared in the journal
*Novel* in 2012, and his essay on democratic form in Joyce and Dos Passos
will appear in Gregory Castle’s forthcoming *History of the Modernist
Novel. *His current work includes a book-length project on the links
between twentieth-century fiction and quantitative social science.


 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.


 Our final fall 2014 speaker will be:


 Benjamin Kahan (LSU), "Sherwood Anderson's *Winesburg, Ohio*, or Sex in
the Age of Fordism", on Wednesday, November 12, 2014, at 6 pm in Room 133,
Barker Center.


 Details about the Center, including a calendar of events, are available
