Continentalizing Global Modernism @ MLA 2021

As the ambit of global modernist studies expands, the place of continental Europe in the geography of modernism is something of a quandary. Indeed, the continent’s place was never very clear to begin with. In her foundational essay “Periodizing Modernism,” Susan Stanford Friedman criticizes a disciplinary bias that favors Anglo-American modernism at the expense of writing from postcolonial nations. Yet Friedman also notes that the old, chiefly Anglo-American modernist studies possessed only a “limited continental scope.” Thus the turn to the globe––that is, the turn away from Europe––has consigned the continent to the disciplinary past when, according to Friedman, it was a marginalized domain in the first place.
