>Proposed panel: Modernism and the Historical Sense
>
>Recent criticism has attempted to overcome the notion of modernism as
>"ahistorical" by situating modernist works of art in relation to
>empire, mass
>culture or the marketplace.  This panel seeks to reflect on this
>scholarly
>trend using the historiographic views of the modernists themselves,
>whether
>explicitly stated or implicit in their art.  What kind of
>historiographic practice
>does modernism seem to sanction or recommend?  What  is the relationship
>between our own historicizing modes and those of the modernist period?
>To what extent are contemporary historicizations implicated in their own
>versions of ahistoricity?
>
>Please send a 1-page abstract and brief CV by April 25 to Paul Stasi:
