MSA 19 (Amsterdam)

I am thrilled to announce that the panel I organized for MSA 19, “Afterlives: Death and the End(s) of Religion in Literary Modernism,” has been accepted. I am equally thrilled to present alongside Pericles Lewis (Yale U) and Suzanne Hobson (Queen Mary U of London), whose generous suggestions helped give this panel its final shape. If you will be at MSA 19 in Amsterdam, we would love to see you at our panel. Here’s the line-up:
