CFP: Holocaust Surrealisms, Special Panel at the MLA Annual Convention,
2020, Seattle, 9-12 January.

This panel will explore how surrealist aesthetics and practices have
influenced Holocaust representations, memory, and testimony. How do
surrealist forms provide a counterpoint to the postmodern paradigm of
minimalism and fragmentation that still dominates scholarship on the event?
What is the relationship between surrealism and the recent shift towards
hyperrealist or historical representations?

250-word abstracts and short bio by March 25.
