Modernisms Revisited II: 1922-2022

In 2022, we will celebrate the centenary of the Modern Art Week, consensually hailed as a landmark in Brazilian art and literature and as the event that gave rise to Modernism in Brazil. As Alfredo Bosi has noted, the Week was “the meeting point of the various trends that had been taking hold in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro since the First World War and the platform that allowed the consolidation of particular groups”, which, in the following years, would significantly change the direction of the country’s intellectual production.

Exploring Transnational Dimensions of Activism in Contemporary Book Culture

“A is for Activist” is the title of a best-selling children’s board book, published in 2013 by Innosanto Nagara. This small book amplifies a large message: books can catalyze change. Publishing has both supported and hampered progressive political and social change, in a variety of international contexts. Activism in publishing is also transnational because national contexts and identities matter, but they exist within a transnational network with unequal power dynamics and “literary capital” (Casanova 2004). Building on ideas of “print activism” in the long twentieth century (Schreiber 2013), this special issue is dedicated to furthering our understanding of activism in the contemporary publishing industry – and in the research thereof.

Women’s Life Writing in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe/ Literatură auto/biografică feminină în Europa de Est şi de Sud-Est/ Récit de vie féminin dans l’Europe de l’Est et du Sud-Est

In the form of memoirs, autobiographies, diaries or correspondence, or given a literary spin as autofiction and biofiction, the experiences of East and South-East European women during wartimes and under the oppressive regimes of the twentieth century (a period laden with contrasts, which in the West was hailed as “acentury of women”, Rowbotham 1997, but also framed as an “age of testimony”, Felman and Laub 1992) have been surfacing in the past two decades. The transmission of these narratives followed sinuous paths, taking both verbal and non-verbal forms, relying on both “filial” and “affiliative” networks (Hirsch 2012), and coming from both female victims and female perpetrators (Schwab 2010).

 I am recruiting contributors for a collection of scholarly essays with the working title Starcrossed Century: Astrology in Global Society from World War One to Covid. The book is designed to address the identification of the history of astrology with "premodern" history. The historiography of astrology is very active and intellectually exciting, but it focuses almost entirely on the period before 1800. Yet never have there been more astrological believers and practitioners than today. So far I have committments for two essays, one (by me) on American astrologers and COVID, and one on astrology and identity in the sixties counterculture. I want to avoid too heavy a focus on the Anglophone world (although I would love a serious essay on astrology
