Please consider submitting a proposal to my CFP for MSA 19, Suicidal
In Andrew Bennett'€™s recently published Suicide Century (2017), the author
> writes that suicide "€œstreams like a poison through the tainted life blood
> of the modernist literary canon." And yet work on modernism and suicide is
> scarce; in fact, work on "€œliterary suicidology" more generally has not
> matched the subject'€™s importance to our field. This panel would like to
> build on the work of Bennett and a few others (Al Alvarez, Jeffrey Berman)
> and examine the representation and non-representation of suicide in
> modernist texts.
> Interdisciplinary approaches as well as proposals that concern
> underrepresented writers are especially welcome.
> Please send a 300-word abstract with short bio to Aaron Botwick (
> abotwick at gradcenter.cuny.edu) by March 31, 2018.
