BAMS Festival of Modernism, June-July 2021

This was meant to be a conference year.  However, as the conditions aren’t yet right for international travel and face-to-face meetings of large groups of modernist scholars, the British Association of Modernist Studies has put together a programme of online events that will take place for a month from 16 June – Bloomsday, famously the day on which James Joyce’s Ulysses (1922) is set. The International James Joyce Conference will also take place Monday 14 – Friday 18 June. Some of these events are organised by us; in some instances we’re simply highlighting events and conferences that are being organised by other societies and friends in modernist studies. Highlights include: The Aesthetics of Global Modernsim, a one-day conference; D.H. Lawrence, Distance and Proximity: A Symposium; Television and Modernism; Salons de la Vie: The women’s theatre and Nobody expects the sufragettes; Television and Modernism, and Modernism and the Best-Seller

Please sign up for any event you’re interested in by 4pm (UK/BST) on the preceding day at the link here:

All times are UK/BST.  We’ve tried to spread events out as best we can in order to minimise video fatigue.  Zoom links will be circulated on the day of the event to anyone who has registered and provided a correct email address at the above link.

Please engage with us via our social media presence.  You can join the Facebook group, tag us on twitter @modernistudies, and/or use the hashtag #ModFest2021.

We hope that we’ll be able to meet again in person soon.  In the meantime, please enjoy these festival events that we’ve put on. We’re looking forward to seeing you all virtually!
