The Origins of Atlantic Modernism

A.J Ginger

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


The origins of modernism are often situated in the mid-nineteenth-century in Paris. This essay examines parallel developments over a larger geographical area, with particular attention to the Ibero-American Atlantic. The essay argues that the apparent parallels paradoxically undermine the coherence of some of the most fundamental theorisations of cultural modernity. However, it goes on to suggest a way of reformulating the explanation for the similarity between developments across the Atlantic.
