Composing Modernist Connections in China and Europe

I would like to call the list members’ attention to the publication of Composing Modernist Connections in China and Europe, edited by me and published by Routledge in the series “Routledge Studies in Twentieth-Century Literature.” Here is the link to the publisher’s website, followed by a blurb:

Global modernisms are marked by tremendous transformations in lifestyle, historical consciousness, cultural values, ethics, wars, and crises. This book emphasizes modernist connections within literature, culture, history, and media beyond the nation state and the bifurcation between East and West. Instead of deconstructing and separating, Composing Modernist Connections in China and Europe composes and forges new combinations, linkages, and translations that place Chinese and European modernisms on an equal footing. This book features contributions on James Joyce, Stefan George, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Anna Seghers, Qian Zhongshu, Weimar labor modernism, Chinese wartime literature, Chinese movies in divided Germany, and Sinophone modernity among other subjects.
