Modernist Fragmentation and After

Sept. 29. from 4:30pm

and Sept. 30 from 10am

106 McCormick

The two-day conference will investigate, from a classical perspective, how fragmentation was both an aesthetic technique and a figure for the social processes of alienation and atomization in the 20th-21st centuries. Among the various talks and panels are Anna Fyta’s “Hippolytus Broken: H. D.’s Reconstruction of the Euripidean Lost Parchment in the Choral Odes from Hippolytus and Hippolytus Temporizes,” Nimrod Reitman’s “Non-finito: Michelangelo and Rilke’s Unfinished Fragments,” David Pritchard’s “Poetry as Accumulation Strategy: Midwinter Day and the Space of Modernism,” and more. For the full program, including details on the keynote by Dr. Nora Goldschmidt (Durham U.), see here.
