Dear Colleagues,


Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Tuesday, April 17, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Thomas Davis (Ohio State
University) speak on:


*"Fossils of Tomorrow: *

*Len Lye, J.G. Ballard, and Planetary Futures"*


The presentation will take place in the Mahindra Humanities
Center, Barker 133.


*Thomas S. Davis* is Associate Professor of English at The Ohio State
University.  He is the author of *The Extinct Scene: Late Modernism and
Everyday Life
<https://cup.columbia.edu/book/the-extinct-scene/9780231169424>* (Columbia
University Press, 2016). His essays have appeared in *Twentieth Century
Literature*, *Textual Practice*, *Literature Compass*, *English Language
Notes*, and several edited collections.  He is co-editor with Nathan K.
Hensley of a forthcoming cluster on “Scale and Critical Form” for
*Modernism/Modernity*’s Print-Plus Platform.  He is currently working on
two book projects: *Fossils of Tomorrow: The Literature and Culture of the
Great Acceleration* and *The Cultural Lives of Climate Change*.


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.
