Makes a persuasive case for a black Atlantic literary renaissance & its impact on modernist studiesThese 10 new chapters stretch and challenge current canonical configurations of modernism in two key ways: by considering the centrality of black artists, writers and intellectuals as key actors and core presences in the development of a modernist avant-garde; and by interrogating 'blackness' as an aesthetic and political category at critical moments during the twentieth century. This is the first book-length publication to explore the term 'Afromodernisms' and the first study to address together the cognate fields of modernism and the black Atlantic. Key Features:* Sets a new agenda for the study of blackness and modernism* Specially commissioned contribution from Tyler Stovall on Black Modernism and an Afterword from Demetrius Eudell on 'What to the Negro is Modernism?'* Identifies key locations of modernism: Harlem, Paris, Haiti* Addresses the question of gender, often overlooked in black Atlantic scholarship
