  • Modern Art in Late Colonial Korea: A Research Experiment
    • Abstract: A young woman sits in the center of a room crammed with laboratory equipment (fig. 1). Behind her are glass flasks filled with unknown liquids and neatly arranged in rows. A large table juts from the painting’s right edge. It groans under the accumulated weight of numerous implements all intended to measure, gauge, and subsequently coax into orderly submission the unruly world of the living. Next to the woman is a kymograph, used for measuring physiological response in animals. Battery powered, it records responses transmitted through electrodes attached to the subjects and is frequently used in pharmacological experiments monitoring the effects of drugs.1 Two white rabbits housed in round wire-mesh cages below the ...

  • Literary, But Not Too Literary; Joyous, But Not Jazzy: Triad Magazine,
           Antipodean Modernity and the Middlebrow
    • Abstract: My title comes from an editorial in the Sydney monthly, the Triad, from July 1924. It represents one in a series of attempts by the magazine’s editors to redefine their magazine in a way that was adequate to the changed cultural circumstances in which they found themselves in the mid-1920s—surrounded on all sides by the new cultures of modernity, confronting the rapid turnover of isms that had yet to find enduring institutional form as modernism, and attempting to find a place in a cultural field that appeared newly segmented into high, low, and middlebrow strata, at exactly the moment the term “middlebrow” gained wide currency in the English-speaking world. The editors sought an editorial platform, an audience ... Read More

  • Surrealism in the Hallucinatory City
    • Abstract: In his cultural history of Australian modernism, Ghost Nation, the poet and writer Laurie Duggan presents a “thick description” of the everyday contradictions that saturate the landscape of Australian visual culture. Attentive to the density of the everyday which includes “the residues of a dream-world” (Walter Benjamin’s phrase), Duggan’s portrait maps the visual landscape against the intersecting tensions that came to define Australia in this period, as enigmatic island-continent and emerging modern cosmopolitan nation.1 Here the nation’s ghostly residues are not mirages ignited by death, but the assortment of images that ghost each other: hallucinated assemblages that reveal a deeply embedded mythology of a ...

  • The California Occult: Nathanael West, Theodor Adorno, and the
           Representation of Mass Cultural Desire
    • Abstract: “When you wish upon a star / Makes no difference who you are.” So sang Jiminy Cricket to such popular acclaim that the song won an Academy Award in 1940 and became the theme song of the Disney Company shortly after. At the tail end of the Depression and the beginning of another global conflagration, Walt Disney saw no need to ration wishes; instead he transformed his Southern California studio into their most fanciful realization. By the very different lights of Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer’s critique of the culture industry, however, Disney’s credo about the egalitarian possibilities of dreaming looked rather more baleful. Instead of each dream enabling the fulfillment of an individual self, the culture ... Read More

  • Labor-Movement Modernism: Proletarian Collectives between Kuhle Wampe and
           Working-Class Performance Culture
    • Abstract: In late 1929, Kolonne Links, one of about two hundred proletarian agitprop troupes that performed at the time in Weimar Germany’s working-class neighborhoods and at political events, devised a performance titled “Film.”1 The piece moved from satirical critiques of the movie industry and film censorship to propaganda for the Volksfilmverband, a platform promoting a left-wing cinema.2 In particular, the performance criticized the film industry for producing movies that allegedly pacified proletarian audiences, compromised their investment in class struggle, and provided an illusory depiction of reality. Fritz Lang’s classic Metropolis, which had been released just two years earlier in 1927, was the performance’s case ... Read More

  • Money, Painting, and the Generic Abidance of Elizabeth Bishop’s
           “Poem”
    • Abstract: “Money is a kind of poetry.”“‘You can’t call it living / without the margin’”By tracking down, restoring, and publishing the painting that supplies the descriptive occasion of “Poem” (1972), John Felstiner would appear to put a rewarding close to a mystery about one of Elizabeth Bishop’s most personal lyrics.1 Now critics who want to understand “Poem” as part of the canonical tradition of ekphrastric verse can speak from exact knowledge of Bishop’s material artifact. We can gauge her art by its departures from the recurrent aesthetic rivalries of the ekphrastic poem subgenre. At the same time, Felstiner’s work aids the recognition that, since it means “description,” the Greek ekphrasis has long served critics in ... Read More

  • “Always Present”: T. S. Eliot and Re-cantation
    • Abstract: “Re-cantation” does not normally require a hyphen, so at the outset my usage needs defending. Its insertion is intended to suggest more possibilities than those contained by the customarily unhyphenated “recantation” (implying a retraction or disavowal of earlier utterance: effectively, “I unsay my former saying”).1 I want to emphasize the almost opposite connotation: repetition, more particularly a “singing again” that has some fellow feeling with “incantation.” In what follows, I shall be more concerned to explore suggestive possibilities of the hyphenated form, but the conventional understanding also deserves attention. Both the customary understanding and the extended resonances of my hyphenated form have ... Read More

  • Herbert Read’s Egoist Roots
    • Abstract: Even with the recent resurgence of interest in his work, Herbert Read is still probably best remembered for his role in founding the Institute of Contemporary Arts, his editorship of The Burlington Magazine, and his authorship of Art Now and The Concise History of Modern Painting—two books that were, for a time, touchstones of modern art criticism.1 For all the air of established authority that his most well-known achievements suggest, however, a survey of the professional personae that Read adopted in his own lifetime actually reveals a figure that was something of an intellectual will-o’-the-wisp.2 To name just a few of his academic interests: at one time or another, Read claimed to be an imagist, a surrealist, a ...

  • Writing the Real: Modernism in Korean Literature
    • Abstract: Defining literary modernism and modernity in Korea is a task that has dogged Korean literary scholars for decades. The circumstances under which Korea became “modern,” and the ways Korean writers engaged with the physical and metaphysical states of “being modern,” were deeply implicated in the colonial, postcolonial, and Cold War politics of the peninsula. The period of Japanese colonial rule (1910–45) was marked by dizzying transformations that took place both as a result of, and through resistance to, colonial policies. Following liberation, Korea became fully integrated into the Cold War system that split the peninsula into North and South (1948). This division was followed by the Korean War (1950–53), which ...

           Futurism Studies by Mariana Aguirre, Rosa Sarabia, Renée M. Silverman,
           and Ricardo Vasconcelos (review)
    • Abstract: What was global about modernism' For years now we have seen academic positions, conferences, and books urging correctives to the Eurocentric historiography of modern art and literature and challenging us to think about modernities and modernisms.1 Whether analyzing “alternative” modernities, as in Dilip Gaonkar’s terminology, “multiple” modernities, as proposed by S. N. Eisenstadt, or “modernism at large,” as per Arjun Appadurai and Andreas Huyssen, modernism now is seen as a global but contradictory phenomenon with profoundly different temporalities and manifestations in its multiple locations.Yet the challenge for these studies is to address both the particularities of local responses to modernity and what they ...

  • The Mobility of Modernism: Art and Criticism in 1920s Latin America by
           Harper Montgomery (review)
    • Abstract: Harper Montgomery’s The Mobility of Modernism: Art and Criticism in 1920s Latin America was released on the heels of Mauricio Tenorio-Trillo’s Latin America: The Allure and Power of an Idea (2017), a book which spends eight chapters arguing why Latin America is a useless construct that “has never been a real place, a clear civilization, or a well-demarcated and unique culture or group of cultures.”1 Tenorio-Trillo posits that US academia uses “Latin America” as a form of packaging that “avoid[s] command of any explicit history” and instead becomes a platform from which to postulate “‘big’ histories and theories” (Latin America, 166). How nerve-wracking for an emerging scholar who boldly—or naively'—references Latin ... Read More

  • Gender and the Rhetoric of Modernity in Spanish America, 1850–1910
           by Lee Skinner (review)
    • Abstract: In this thought-provoking volume, Lee Skinner aims to chart out the relationship between gender discourses and the projects of modernity of the second half of the nineteenth century. Starting from a vision of modernity as a “malleable” discursive construct, Skinner investigates the ways in which “gender affected responses to and creations of discourses of modernity” (11). The author’s main thesis is that the rhetoric of modernity was used and appropriated strategically by both female and male writers to further a vision of national progress that was inclusive of women and incorporated them more fully into public life (14). Gender discourses in Skinner’s narrative become not only constitutive of but also crucial to ... Read More

  • Blasphemous Modernism: The 20th-Century Word Made Flesh by Steve Pinkerton
           (review)
    • Abstract: Those critics self-consciously engaged in academe’s “religious turn” regularly cite Stanley Fish’s 2005 op-ed for the Chronicle of Higher Education in which he predicts the inexorable return of repressed religious issues into mainstream academic discourse. Steve Pinkerton’s Blasphemous Modernism represents the most provocative recent addition to this conversation in large part because the author rejects one of Fish’s core assumptions. Instead of treating religion as a critical category destined to supplant the academic idols of race, class, gender, and sexuality, Pinkerton insists on the inherent connection between political, religious, and artistic concerns in purportedly “secular” modernist literature. Blasphemy ... Read More

  • The Contemporaneity of Modernism: Literature, Media, Culture ed. by
           Michael D’Arcy and Mathias Nilges (review)
    • Abstract: Michael D’Arcy and Mathias Nilges open their editors’ Introduction to this collection of essays by asking if the contemporary moment is a modernist moment. The question assumes both that modernism is definitively over and that it is perhaps ongoing: over, in that to ask if the contemporary moment is a modernist moment—rather than if we live in a modernist moment—is to assume that modernism, at least in one familiar sense of the term, is not contemporary; ongoing, in that the legacies or afterlives of modernism somehow continue to manifest themselves in and even give shape to the present. The act of posing the question auspiciously queries the assumption that gives it its meaning.Contemporary writers and artists ... Read More

  • Modernist Afterlives in Irish Literature and Culture ed. by Paige Reynolds
           (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Paige Reynolds’s collection of essays, Modernist Afterlives in Irish Literature and Culture, deftly signals the complex relations between periodization and nationality in contemporary critical discourses of modernism. The collection avoids the tendency of some recent studies to expand the definition of modernism into the latter end of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first centuries, opting instead to take its cue from David James and Urmila Seshagiri’s proposal to distinguish between modernism as a historically precise phenomenon and its legacies for later writers, which they term “metamodernism.” James supplies the Afterword to the collection, as indeed he contributed the keynote ...

  • Poet-Critics and the Administration of Culture by Evan Kindley (review)
    • Abstract: Even taking into consideration penicillin and the atomic bomb, bureaucracy may be the most consequential and pervasive of twentieth-century humanity’s gifts to ourselves. (Global warming we gave to all species.) Yes, administrative gears ground in ancient Rome and classical China, but in the 1900s bureaucratic organizations and institutions of every type spread like kudzu. Sociologists such as William Whyte and Max Weber documented how, over the first half of the century, bureaucracies proliferated beyond the church, the military, and the government, coming to colonize every aspect of modern life.Even the rambunctious American literary world got “rationalized” (to use Weber’s term) and, by the postwar period ...

  • Power Lines: Electricity in American Life and Letters, 1882–1952 by
           Jennifer L. Lieberman (review)
    • Abstract: Jennifer L. Lieberman’s Power Lines explores how turn-of-the-twentieth-century literature opens what she calls the “black box” of technology (216). To do so, Power Lines traces the depiction of electricity in American fiction from the late-nineteenth to mid-twentieth centuries in conjunction with industrial, governmental, legal, and medical discourses. Elucidating the multiple meanings of electricity as it animates multiple systems (transportation, power, communications), Power Lines enables us to reconsider how literary form is transformed through the second industrial revolution and, in turn, how literary texts take part in defining the emerging systems of this revolution. As it positions literature at the heart ... Read More

  • The Parisian Avant-Garde in the Age of Cinema, 1900–1923 by Jennifer
           Wild (review)
    • Abstract: Like that of photography before it, cinema’s emergence as a conveyor of meaning represented an epistemological crisis, one in which existing categories such as art, technology, and class seemed inadequate to contain the new thing that was at once a fixed and unfixed image, a code-bearing text, and a manner of exhibition and circulation. Jennifer Wild’s Parisian Avant-Garde in the Age of Cinema, 1900–1923 situates cinema at the heart of artistic inquiry by exploring nodes of contact between emergent cinematic practices and the radically new conceptions of painting, poetry, and theater that constituted the labor of the avant-garde. The work of Wild’s text, however, is notably not in chronicling the emergence of an ... Read More
