New Work in Modernist Studies

Saturday 5 December 2015, 10am-5.30pm,

University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Queen’s Building, LT1

The fifth one-day Graduate Conference on New Work in Modernist Studies will take place at the University of Exeter (Streatham campus), in conjunction with the Modernist Network Cymru (MONC), the London Modernism Seminar, the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the Northern Modernism Seminar, and the British Association for Modernist Studies (BAMS).

As in previous years, this conference will take the form of an interdisciplinary programme of short papers arranged in panels, 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 students who are eager to share their work. The day will close with a plenary lecture by Professor Simon Shaw-Miller, Chair in the History of Art, University of Bristol, and author of Eye hEar: The Visual in Music (Ashgate 2013), Visible Deeds in Music: Art and Music from Wagner to Cage (Yale, 2002, second ed. 2004) and numerous essays and articles on art and music in the modern period, including ‘Modernist Music’ in the Oxford Handbook of Modernisms (Oxford, 2010).
