The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914-1945

Intersections of Resistance in the Space Between | Conference Preview

The 2018 conference is being presented jointly with the newly-formed Feminist inter/Modernist Association.  In the weeks before the meeting of these two organizations, we will be devoting a section of The Space Between: Literature and Culture 1914–1945 to special features related to the conference theme.  Our hope is that this will spark conversation and collaboration before, during, and after the conference.  

Readers may also wish to check out the Fall 2017 Q & A with FiMA co-founders Julie Vandivere and Sarah Cornish (who is also the organizer of the 2018 conference).


Abstract Highlights

Once a week, we feature an abstract selected by the conference organizers in anticipation of the conversations to come.  These represent just a sample of the exciting work being done by scholars of intermodernism on memory and prophecy in the space between.

Featured Abstracts (starting the first week in May):

Lauren Benjamin, “Feral Reading and Djuna Barnes’ Nightwood” 
Melissa Bradshaw, “Gertrude Stein’s Plastic Afterlife”
Erica Gene Delsandro, “Mongrel Modernism” 
Catherine Hollis,“Fitzi’s Library: Mary Eleano​​​​r Fitzgerald’s Service to Modernist Art and Radical Politics” 
Cassandra Laity’s “Elizabeth Bishop’s Feminist, Anti-Cold War/Nuclear-Bomb Poetics: Queered Global Ecologies”
Elizabeth Foley O'Connor's "Pamela Colman Smith, Female Artistic Communities, and the Suffrage Movement”
