The Book Series of the “Centre for European Modernism Studies” collects contributions from internationally acclaimed scholars on literary modernism. The main aim of the Series is, in fact, to tackle the principal questions in the contemporary critical debate such as periodization, limits and geographical boundaries, centres and peripheries, its major authors, modernist’s persistence in the 20th Century, modernism and realism, modernism and literary theory, modernism vs postmodernism. The Book Series is multidisciplinary and while it mainly gathers comparative literature projects, it is also open to studies on canonical modernist authors between 19th and 20th Century. It is indeed an academic platform, but with the aspiration to produce works able to dialogue with a broader audience. Literature is therefore the point of departure, the common denominator of a Book Series that tries to contaminate different disciplines such as film studies, visual arts, music, philosophy and popular culture.
