CALL FOR SEMINAR AND PANEL PROPOSALS

MSA 4

THE MODERNIST STUDIES ASSOCIATION
FOURTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
31 October - 3 November, 2002
University of Wisconsin, Madison

The MSA

Founded in 1999, the Modernist Studies Association is devoted to the
study of the arts in their social, political, cultural, and intellectual 
contexts from the late nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth. Through 
its annual conferences and its journal,Modernism/Modernity, the organization 
seeks to develop an international and interdisciplinary forum for exchange 
among scholars in this revitalized and rapidly expanding field. For more 
information, please see our web site at
http://msa.press.jhu.edu/

The fourth annual Modernist Studies Association Conference will be held
at the Monona Terrace Convention Center, a building designed by Frank Lloyd 
Wright on the shores of Lake Monona in downtown Madison, Wisconsin. Sponsored 
by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the conference will feature plenaries,
panels, seminars, poetry readings, and film screenings related to the study of 
modernism and modernity.

Calls for seminar and panel proposals follow. Please note that the
deadline for seminar proposals is 15 February 2002, the deadline for panel 
proposals 1 May 2002. Please note also that MSA rules do not allow
participants to lead a seminar and present a paper for a panel at the same 
conference. Participants may present a panel paper and participate in a 
seminar, or chair a panel and lead a seminar.

All who attend the MSA Conference must be members of the organization
with dues paid for 2002.

CALL FOR SEMINAR LEADERS
Deadline: 15 February 2002

SEMINARS

Participation of conferees in seminars is one of the most significant
features of the MSA conference. Seminars are small-group discussion sessions 
for which participants write brief "position papers" that are read and 
circulated prior to the conference. Seminars generate lively and valuable 
exchange during the conference and in some cases havecreated a network of 
scholars who have continued to work together. Further, the seminar model allows 
most conferees to seek financial support from their institutions as they 
educate themselves and their colleagues on subjects of mutual interest.

SEMINAR TOPICS

There are no limits on topics. Past experience has shown that the more
clearly defined the topic and the more guidance provided by the leader, the 
more useful the discussion has been to people's individual projects. Seminar 
topics at the 2001 MSA conference included "Literary Modernism and Visual 
Culture, "Modernism and Masculinity," and "New Approaches to Little Magazines." 
For a full listing, see the MSA Web site.

Seminars will be selected in late March. Please note that participants
may not present a paper and lead a seminar at the same conference. Participants 
may present a panel paper and participate in a seminar, or chair a panel and 
lead a seminar.

LEADING A SEMINAR

The MSA will advertise seminars and register participants. To promote
discussion, the size of seminars is limited to a maximum of 15. Leaders may, at 
their option, invite one or two individuals to join the seminar in some special 
role. Some leaders will wish to share the work of reading and responding to 
papers with the invited participants; others will simply want to assure a
high standard of discussion by involving scholars whose work they know
to be important for their topic. Please note that invited participants will not 
be specially listed as such in the conference program.

E-mail addresses for all seminar registrants will be provided to seminar 
leaders in May. At that time, leaders should

       Initiate communications by e-mail, introducing themselves
and providing addresses to all participants.

       Set guidelines for the seminar. These might include questions to
be addressed, readingto be done, and a specified length
for the position papers (normally 5-7 pages).
       Set firm deadlines, no later than mid-September for the actual
exchange of papers.
       Exchange and read papers during the 6-8 weeks before the
conference.
       Plan the seminar format. The MSA will provide guidance, but
leaders are, within reasonable limits, free to use the time
(two hours) as they see fit.
