Screen Shot 2015-10-20 at 11.24.00 AM

This roundtable brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to offer their reflections on the changing nature of the study of modernist literature, poetry, art and cinema from across Europe, the Americas, Africa and the Middle East. The panel will address the question of what makes modernism global, and what the implications of this shift are for modernist scholarship and pedagogy. Each panelist will offer observations on the global turn in modernist studies from a disciplinary perspective, followed by a conversation among the panelists and with the audience.

The event marks the launch of the “Global Modernisms Group”, a research collaborative of the NYU Center for the Humanities. It will include a reading series, a work-in-progress program, and a database of lectures and events on modernism in the New York area, co-organized by Lori Cole and Kelly Sullivan.
