Abstract

This chapter examines work published on modernism in 2007 and 2008 and looks at the social, institutional, historical and gendered formations of modernism in books which offer historiographical reconsiderations of the field through new definitions, arguments about origins or new matrices. It discusses books which address the appearance of the networks and maps of modernism as they emerge in geo-spatial, socio-historical and psychological arenas. The chapter is divided into two sections: 1. Modernism, War and Gender, which looks at ideas around origins, the Great War and gender in modernism; 2. Mind and Body: Mapping Modernism, examines books that map the way in which the matrices of modernity emerge in concepts concerning the body and racial identity, as well as within modernisms¿ psychological aesthetics.
