Sixth symposium: Making of Modernity
- Barber Institute Lecture Theatre
- Arts and Law
The Birmingham Centre for the Study of Cultural Modernity, based in the College of Arts and Law, is an interdisciplinary hub for research into the textual, artistic and cultural formation of the ‘modern’ self and society that resulted from a process of rapid industrialisation over the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth. These seminars explore this process.
Speakers are: Dominic Williams, ‘The Split Man and the Crowd Master: John Rodker and Wyndham Lewis’ and Nadia Valman, ‘A Ghetto of Voluntary Formation: Israel Zangwill's Whitechapel’.
