Time and Temporality in European Modernism and the Avant-Gardes
(1900-1950), Leuven (Belgium), 16-18 September 2013

This three-day conference aims to canvass the breadth and depth of the
issues of time and temporality in European modernist writing and classic
avant-garde literature.

It has often been argued that so-called “high” modernist and avant-garde
writing were perhaps the first to investigate in detail the problems of
time and temporality. As a result, reflection on both issues in (“new”)
modernism and avant-garde studies abounds. To date, however, we lack a
systematic understanding of the different forms and functions of time
and temporality in the writing from the period. It is this lacuna the
present conference aims to fill. We are particularly interested in
(general as well as innovative case-based) considerations of modernist
and avant-garde writing and practices that tackle one of the following

• How was time represented? What genres, techniques and means were
deployed to evoke time? • In what ways was the literary representation
of time influenced by (changes in) other media and art forms? • Which
temporalities (bodily and natural time, mechanical and machine time,
private and public time, etc.) were evoked and how did they interrelate?
• How was the flow of time conceived (teleological, multilayered and
-directional, cyclical, etc.) and what temporal regimes (for example,
favoring the present, past or future; continuity and tradition or
rupture and revolution) were at work in modernism, the avant-garde, and
cognate phenomena like the so-called arrière-garde? What hitherto
ignored temporal modes require further scrutiny? • What were the
ramifications of modernist and avant-garde conceptions of time for the
practice of reading, the history of the book (classics, pockets, …), and
more generally for the social and cultural legitimation of literature? •
What other (perhaps less well studied) discourses (physics, biology,
engineering, philosophy, etc.) informed literary reflection on time and
temporality and how were insights from these other discourses translated
in literary practice? • How was time experienced and what were its
implications for our understanding of the modern body, identity and
subjectivity? • Were there noticeable variations in how time was dealt
with in modernist and avant-garde writing in different parts of Europe
(and beyond)? What, more generally, were the implications of the views
of time for the understanding of space and place (in writing)? • Does
the conception of time change in the course of the period 1900-1950,
and, if so, what are the (social, literary, philosophical, …) conditions
of emergence and consequences of these changes?

We welcome paper and panel proposals before 15 MARCH 2013 on these
and other questions crucial to any mapping of the literary timescape
between 1900-1950. By analyzing in-depth how modernist and avant-garde
writing reflected on time and change, we ultimately aim to explore the
ramifications of these ideas for the literary historiography of the period.

Proposals are welcome from individuals, and from panels of three or
four. We especially welcome panel proposals and prefer panels where
members are drawn from different institutions, preferably across
national boundaries.

Panel proposals should include the following information: • Title of
panel • Name, address and email contact of Panel Chair • A summary of
the panel topic (300 words) • A summary of each individual contribution
(300 words) • Name, address and email contact of individual contributors
• Short biography of all contributors, incl. main publications and areas
of expertise
