>CFP: Visual Archives and Embodied Practice
>This panel looks to the archive as a motivating
>device for intervention, rather
>than as an inert repository of empirical data.
>In other words, we're interested
>in discussing how archival research becomes embodied in practices, and would
>like to reconsider the agents and institutions mediating these embodiments.
>For the purposes of this panel, we understand the term "archive" to mean a
>material space, collection or technical practice used to store and reproduce
>cultural information. We are looking for papers focusing on 20th-century
>creative producers' (e.g., critics, artists, novelists, directors, architects)
>use of the visual as a means to get out of the archive, to intervene in the
>"real world." Examples include but are not be limited to Siegfried Kracauer,
>Wyndham Lewis, Alfred D–blin, Charlie Chaplin, H.D., Alfred Hitchcock, Samuel
>Beckett, Dorothy Richardson, James Joyce, and Virginia Woolf.
>We welcome proposals from all disciplinary and methodological
>perspectives, and encourage interdisciplinary
>proposals. This panel is proposed
>for the 2006 Modernist Studies Association conference, October 19-22 in Tulsa,
>Please send 500 word abstracts to both Max Brzezinski and Bart Keeton at
>[log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask] by April 15, 2006.
