Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Tuesday, November 27, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Thomas Davis (Ohio
State University) give a presentation titled:

*Fossils of Tomorrow: *

*Late Modernism and the Great Acceleration*

Note: 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*, *Modern Fiction Studies*, *Textual Practice*, *Literature
Compass*, *English Language Notes*, and several edited collections.  He is
co-editor with Nathan K. Hensley of the “Scale and Critical Form”
<https://modernismmodernity.org/forums/scale-and-form> cluster 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.
