Moving Modernisms

Andrew Thacker

Oxford University Press

This chapter points to some of the problems inherent in recent large-scale constructions of ‘global’, ‘transnational’, and ‘planetary’ modernisms. It strikes a warning note about cultural geography: ‘the globe of a global modernism looks very different depending upon where you are positioned’. In offering alternative mappings, it proposes, firstly, a re-evaluation of ‘modernist internationalism’; secondly, following the lead of Jon Hegglund’s recent study World Views: Metageographies of Modernist Fiction, an attentiveness both to the ‘national dimensions and origins’ of modernism and to ‘intercultural encounters’; thirdly, a focus on the idea of scale and a non-hierarchical spatial layering.

Keywords:   global modernism, modernist internationalism, Jon Hegglund, cultural geography, scale
