Modernist Literature & the Face: CFP

We’re excited to launch a new Blog Cluster on Modernist Literature & the Face with the cross-institutional Lost Modernists network. 

Lost Modernists is a hub for all-things related to literary modernism, including neglected or lost modernist writers and those part of the Lost Generation. Their content spans rare books, interviews with eminent scholars, authorial profiles, peer-reviewed blog clusters, and more.

Hieratic Head of Ezra Pound, 1914

We’re seeking contributions in the form of interviews, short reflections and scholarly essays that consider the representation of the face in modernist literature.

Possible topics might include:

  • facial expression and identity in modernist literary texts
  • the ‘unreadable’ or ambivalent gaze of modernism 
  • interpreting faces in daily life
  • loss of face, impersonality and ennui 
  • imagism and the face in modernist poetry
  • stream of consciousness and the face in the modern novel

More details on the CFP here.
