>Alternative Modernities, Alternative Modernisms?
>This panel seeks papers that interrogate and explore the salience of recent
>critiques of the concept of modernity to the understanding of modernism. If
>the concept of modernity was once understood as a description of a state of
>technological sophistication, socio-political organization and economic
>development to which all cultures and societies were destined, this panel
>asks: to what extent does the model of multiple manners of inhabiting
>modernity alter our theorization of modernism? How might we reperiodize,
>map, or narrate modernism in such a context?
>I am especially interested in papers that re-investigate generes, artists
>and forms that have been considered non-modernist or anti-modernist in this
>context. Also welcome are papers that problematize the link between
>modernities and modernisms or that object to the pluralizing impulse.
>Please send 300 word abstracts in the body of your e-mail to [log in to unmask]
