>11/3/05-11/6/05)
>
>"Material Spaces of Urban Modernity"
>
>While city streets have long been recognized as a key location for the
>production of modernist texts, little attention has been paid to other
>sites in the modern metropolis.  This proposed panel for the Modernist
>Studies Association 2005 Conference in Chicago (3-6 November) will
>consider representations of material spaces in the modernist city that
>are in neither public nor private spheres.  These might include (in
>part):
>-restaurants, cafes
>-museums
>-shops
>-lecture halls, art galleries
>-theaters, music halls
>-omnibuses, cabs, train compartments
>-parks
>How are narrative engagements with modernity shaped by such material
>spaces?  Where do material spaces intersect (or not) with metaphorical
>and textual spaces?  How can the notion of modernism as a ýmovementţ
>be in dialogue with a spatial approach to narrative?  I welcome papers
>from all disciplines and critical approaches.
>
>Please send an abstract of no more than 300 words to Elizabeth Evans
>([log in to unmask]) by 15 April 2005.
