Just got back from the Modernist Studies Association conference. Many good papers - especially a bunch on Decadence (the anti-Decadent rhetoric I realize is still with us).

My panel with Steve Fredman, Sergio Bessa and Jesper Olsson (who had not yet read the Art Forum article about his journal, OEI) - "Collage in the 1960s" - went well. We were in the last slot (unfortunately at the same time as Aaron Kunin's paper on ornamentation and cruelty), when a most people had left the conference. But Marjorie Perloff gave her keynote on Oyvind Fahlström and advertised our panel, so we had a pretty good-sized audience (including Marjorie).
