Modernisms and Modernities East, West and South: Comparing Literary and Cultural Experiences
This project aims to create a dialogue between four cultures—British, American, Australian, and Chinese—to address how these societies have reacted and continue to react to the upheavals of modernity. Essential to this discussion is the degree of counterinfluence as these cultures have critically negotiated their traditions and developed new forms of cultural expression. It will also address the question of what survives of modernism and modernist practices in an era of globalization and climate change.
Doctoral candidates will be intimately involved at every stage, from conducting workshops to preparing manuscripts, in order to facilitate dissemination and increase impact. This project will conclude with an international conference; the conference papers will be published for use by scholars and students.
