Modernism in the Age of Comparison

COLT 2540G S01 [CRN: 23894]

Though modernism is often considered a uniquely European and American phenomenon, we will read literary and theoretical texts from Mexico City, Beirut, and Beijing. Among the questions we will ask are these: Where and when did modernism happen? What is the relation of modernism to politics? What is the role of translation in modernism’s origins and development? Readings by Baudelaire, Paz, Adonis, Perloff, Kenner, Jameson, and others.
