Modernism Now!: British Association for Modernist Studies 2014 Conference

BAMS 2014 programmeI presented at the BAMS 2014 Annual Conference, Modernism Now!, on 28 June 2014, as part of a panel of UT graduate students and our supervising professor, Mia Carter.

Our panel was titled “‘More Forms and Stranger’: Actual and Imaginative Intermodernist to Late Modernist Journeys,” and took place at 3:30pm in Room 349 of Senate House Library in the Bloomsbury neighborhood of London.

I presented a paper titled “‘In Favour of Strangeness’: Interwar Anxiety in The Mortmere Stories.” The Mortmere Stories are a set of some finished and some unfinished short stories by Christopher Isherwood and Edward Upward. The stories were written while both authors attended Cambridge in the 1920s, but were not published until 1993. They feature heavily in my dissertation.
