Upcoming: Comparative Modernisms Seminar, London

The program of upcoming events for the Comparative Modernisms Seminar, held at the Institute of English Studies, London, is now available.

About the Seminar

The Seminars Series in Comparative Modernisms, launched by the Institute of English Studies in 2016, 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 English and international speakers as well as hosting a variety of associated events, such as roundtables, workshops and colloquia.
