Fleur Cowles Flair Symposium 2004

This February 19-21, 2004, the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center will host its biannual Fleur Cowles Flair Symposium, named in honor of her exuberant, famously innovative magazine. Taking place at the culmination of our six-month long exhibition, Make it New: The Rise of Modernism, this year's symposium is "The State and Fate of Modernism." Panels will address issues such as the Institutions and Political Contexts of Modernism, as well as Collecting, Marketing and Publishing Modernism.

Featured speakers come from a range of fields—scholars, professional librarians and archivists, publishers, collectors and booksellers. The list of participants includes George Bornstein (Michigan), Morris Dickstein (CUNY Graduate Center), Stephen Enniss (Emory University Library), Glenn Horowitz (Bookseller), Breon Mitchell (Lilly Library), Michael North (UCLA), Joseph Parisi (Poetry Magazine), Marjorie Perloff, (Stanford), Richard Poirier (Rutgers) and Max Rudin (Library of America).

All sessions are plenary, so attendees will not have to worry about missing one talk in order to attend another. Registration is limited to 130 people, with a fee of $75 for early registration or $100 at the door. To register, contact the Symposium Coordinator at 512.471.9643 or via email at flair2004@hrc.utexas.edu.
