>
>Theorists of movement through the modernist city have
>focused almost entirely on the flaneurís stroll and
>the motoristís drive. This proposed panel for the
>Sixth Annual Modernist Studies Association Conference
>in Vancouver will explore how public transportation
>offers alternative figures for the modernist self in
>motion, alternative histories of the city, and
>alternative metaphors for modernity. How do modernist
>writers use images of public transportation to tell
>other stories of modernism? What new models of
>community do the omnibus, elevated train, or subway
>offer? How is the subject on public transportation
>ěpublicî (or not)? What metaphorical modes of
>ětransportationî accompany the literal ones? What
>visual, material, and social histories do different
>forms of public transportation tell? Papers are
>welcome from all disciplines.
