Mara Scanlon Presents Paper at Conference

Professor of English Mara Scanlon delivered an invited paper for a panel of the H.D. International Society at the South Atlantic Modern Language Association Convention in Durham, N.C., on Nov. 9.  The paper, “‘Dot tick we are here’: H.D. on Art, Vision, and Codebreaking,” focused on modernist writer H.D.’s use of telegraphy and Morse code in several works as a metaphor for the unsayable (those elements of art and vision that transcend or resist translation or language) and to establish a model for the appropriate audience, or “receiving stations,” for modern literature.
