Modernist Studies Association Conference
October 31--November 3, 2002
Madison, Wisconsin, USA

The fourth annual Modernist Studies Association Conference will be held at
the Monona Terrace Convention Center, a building designed by Frank Lloyd
Wright on the shores of Lake Monona in downtown Madison, Wisconsin.
Sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the conference will
feature plenaries, panels, seminars, poetry readings, and film screenings
related to the broadly defined, international, and interdisciplinary study
of modernism and modernity.

Founded in 1999, the Modernist Studies Association is devoted to the study
of the arts in their social, political, cultural, and intellectual
contexts from the late-nineteenth century through the mid-twentieth
century. The organization seeks through its annual conferences and
journal, Modernism/Modernity, to develop an international and
interdisciplinary forum to promote exchange among scholars in this
revitalized and rapidly expanding field.
