The richness and complexity of modernist temporalities are well documented,
and recent scholarship increasingly points to the interdependencies of time
and space. Yet despite the fact that temporal fragmentation and rupture
pervade modernist texts, little attention has been paid to the intervals
and pauses in which time seemingly stops. This panel will examine the
modernist pause to consider how such temporal interruptions generate new
forms and critical encounters. What does the interval of the modernist
pause, caesura, or break generate? What does it disrupt or resist? Among
other topics, proposals might consider the modernist pause in relation to
narratives of progress, nationalism and/or globalization; textual omission
and/or censorship; memory and mourning; sexuality and/or queer
temporalities; technology and new media studies; or new materialisms.

Please send a 250 word abstract and brief bio to reckerl at miamioh.edu by
January 27th.
