The new Seminars Series in Comparative Modernisms stresses both modernism’s continuing relevance in the present and its complex, relational nature which calls for a comparative perspective.  It provides a forum for groundbreaking  multidisciplinary, transnational and inter-textual research in modernist studies by inviting international experts as well as hosting a variety of associated events, such as roundtables, workshops and colloquia.
