Session Description:

Following Marianne Hirsch's presidential theme, this roundtable explores various modernist literary magazines that "have been marginalized, forgotten, or omitted from dominant histories." Though these magazines' overlooked status might be seen as a weakness, the participants illustrate how these documents and current periodical scholarship have created what Hirsch calls "a space for engagement and resistance."
