Over the past twenty years, modernist scholars have productively interrogated, probed, and disassembled the “great divide” between modernism and popular culture.  This panel seeks to continue that work by examining intersections, exchanges, disjunctions, and conflicts between modernism and popular forms of cultural production. Panelists might examine major popular cultural forms such as adventure tales, crime fiction, comic strips, science fiction, Hollywood films, radio plays, Jazz music, etc., or any popular cultural sub-genres such as fairy tale fantasy, how to books, romance pulps, esoteric magazines, animal comics, picture books, time-travel romances, Romans à clef, ghost stories, proletarian fiction, etc. etc. 

Please send paper abstracts of 350-500 words and brief bio-bibliographical statements by February 28 to Paul Peppis:  ppeppis at uoregon.edu.
