>This call for papers is for a proposed panel to be
>held at  the (dis)junctions conference, the University of California
>RiversideŪs 13th Annual Humanities Graduate Conference on April 7-8,
>2006:  Lost in Translation.
>
>Scholars such as Lisa Lowe (žImmigrant ActsÓ), 
>Traise Yamamoto (žMasking Selves, Making 
>SubjectsÓ, Paul Gilroy (žThe Black AtlanticÓ), 
>and Phillip Brian Harper (žFraming the 
>MarginsÓ), among others, have theorized that the 
>experience of modernism and postmodernism have 
>been anticipated and experienced differently by 
>marginalized subjects (whether marginalized by 
>class, race, gender, or sexuality).  This panel 
>seeks to explore some of the ways in which we 
>might read texts by marginalized populations as 
>examples of post/modernity, perhaps works that 
>have not been thought of within these rubrics 
>before and to explore some of the reasons that 
>we might think of these works as post/modern.
>
>Some ideas might include (but are not limited to):
>The relationship between capitalism and modernism and the marginalized body
>The specificity of experience as a marginalized member of society
>The difference that geography might make in marginalization
>An exploration between žtraditionalÓ high 
>modernist/post-modernist writers and the 
>interplay between these writers and marginalized 
>writers
