Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Wednesday, March 30, at 6:00 p.m. to hear David James present:

*Modernist Consolations: Elegies of Redress, from Conrad to Coetzee*

The presentation will take place in Warren House, Room 201.
*David James* is Reader in Modern and Contemporary Literature at Queen
Mary, University of London. Author, most recently, of *Modernist
Futures *(Cambridge
University Press, 2012), his edited volumes include *The Legacies of
Modernism* (Cambridge University Press, 2012), *The Cambridge Companion to
British Fiction since 1945* (Cambridge University Press, 2015), and *Modernism
and Close Reading *(due out from Oxford University Press in 2017). His
articles have appeared in such venues as *Modern Fiction Studies*,
*Contemporary
Literature*, and *PMLA*. For Columbia University Press, he co-edits the
book series Literature Now. He is currently working on a new book, *Discrepant
Solace: Contemporary Writing and the Work of Consolation*, forthcoming with
Oxford University Press.

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.

*Our last spring session will be:*

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.
