Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Monday, March 21, at 6:00 p.m. for to hear Gayle Rogers present:

*Modernist Failures and the Provocations of Scholarly Aesthetics: Ezra
Pound and the American University *

The presentation will take place in Warren House, Room 201.
*Gayle Rogers* is associate professor of English at the University of
Pittsburgh and teaches primarily in the fields of global modernisms, world
literatures, translation theory, and critical history.  He is the
author of *Modernism
and the New Spain: Britain, Cosmopolitan Europe, and Literary History* (Oxford
UP, 2012) and, with Sean Latham, *Modernism: Evolution of an Idea* (Bloomsbury
Academic, 2015), which is part of their co-edited series *New Modernisms*.
His work has appeared in *PMLA, **Modernism/modernity, **Comparative
Literature, **NOVEL,* *Journal of Modern Literature*, *Revista
de estudios orteguianos*, and various other publications.  His new
book, *Incomparable
Empires: Modernism and the Translation of Spanish and American Literature*,
is forthcoming in November from Columbia UP.

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.

*Spring Sessions*:

Wed, 30 March, 6-8 pm:  David James (Queen Mary, U of London), “Modernist
Consolations: Elegies of Redress, from Conrad to Coetzee,” (Warren House,
Rm 201 [Kates Room])

Wed, 27 April, 6-8 pm: Hannah Freed-Thall (Brown), "Newspaper Modernism:
Media Aesthetics from Proust to Woolf," (Barker 133)

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