This collection of resources gives students access to the most influential scholarship relating to modernism as a set of aesthetic practices and as a product of late modernity. While modernism is often narrowly seen in Anglo-American terms, the articles here pay close attention to the cross fertilization which occurred when modernist artists and writers drew upon indigenous traditions from Africa, Asia, and the Far East. The set also includes papers that explore how modernism was itself drawn upon in these non-western contexts, and writings that analyze the ways in which modernist work informs the practices of artists from outside the West. Themes covered include: * Definitions and redefinition of modernism in literary criticism from the 1900s to the present * The politics of modernism * Modernism in relation to previous modes and genres * Modernism in the U.S. and Europe * Other cultural manifestations of the modern, such as art, science, psychology, and philosophy
