What is the nature of text – and how do we define where it begins and where it ends? And at a time of political, social and environmental crises, .. Read more what roles have texts played in the deep cultural divisions we see around us, and what are the possibilities for texts to heal division, discrimination and despair? Are there limits to the social benefits that texts can provide in troubling times?. We seek proposals for papers which address these questions across a broad range of textual disciplines and practices from literary, historical, and cultural studies as well as languages, linguistics, and semiotics. Organisers are still developing the format and platform details. The tenth one-day graduate conference on New Work in Modernist Studies will take place online on Friday 11 December 2020, in conjunction with the Modernist Network Cymru (MONC), the London Modernism Seminar, the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the Northern Modernism Seminar, the Midlands Modernist Network and the British Association for Modernist Studies (BAMS). As in previous years, this conference will take the form of an interdisciplinary programme reflecting the full diversity of current graduate work in modernist studies; it encourages contributions both from those already involved in the existing networks and from students new to modernist studies who are eager to share their work.
