Modernist Studies Association 8th Annual Conference

Date: October 19 – 22, 2006
Venue: Tulsa, OK, USA

Founded in 1999, the MSA is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of the arts in their social, political, cultural, and intellectual contexts from the late nineteenth through the twentieth century. The organization’s annual conference regularly brings together in excess of 500 scholars from a variety of disciplines and features an engaging mix of keynote addresses, small seminars, panel presentations, and roundtable discussions. This year the event will be hosted by the University of Tulsa with generous financial support provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the James Joyce Quarterly, the Modernist Journals Project, and Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature.

Although the organizers welcome seminar and panel proposals on any topic related to the organization’s focus, particular preference will be given to those which consider the ways in which visual, literary, cinematic, journalistic, personal, financial, musical, and other sorts of archives have begun to alter the structure and boundaries of aesthetic modernism. Detailed information about the conference – including updated calls for proposals, housing arrangements, travel information, and details regarding subsidiary events – can be found on-line.
