Synopsis

Geographies of Modernism Literatures, Cultures, Spaces by Peter Brooker

One of the most pivotal developments in contemporary literary and cultural studies is the investigation of space and geography, a trend which is proving particularly important for modernist studies. This volume explores the interface between modernism and geography in a range of writers, texts and artists across the twentieth century. Cross-disciplinary essays test and extend a variety of methodological approaches and reveal the reach of this topic into every corner of modernist scholarship. From Imagist poetry and the Orient to teashops and modernism in London, or from mapping and belonging in James Joyce or Joseph Conrad to the space of new media artists, this remarkable volume offers fresh, invigorating research that ranges across the field of modernism. It also serves to identify the many exciting new directions that future studies may take. With groundbreaking essays from an international team of highly-regarded scholars, Geographies of Modernism is an important step forward in literary and cultural studies.

Reviews

'Geographies of Modernism makes a noteworthy effort to redraw the outlines of modernist studies ... the contributors make a conscious effort to cover new ground... Huyssen, a veteran of the field, [and] the work of de Certeau and Benjamin feature prominently. these well-known figures allow it to make productive contributions to our understanding of the phenomenology of modernism. Its contributors are also in close dialogue with current trends in postcolonial studies ... attractive to scholars who want to supplement their theoretical toolkit... it seeks to rejuvenate the discourse of aesthetics in modernist studies while keeping the problem of cultural production clearly in view.' - Modernism/Modernity'
