Cultural Institutions of the Transatlantic World, 1930-1970

This project will focus on transatlantic sites of cultural production--especially publishing houses, highbrow periodicals, and literary radio programs--that were integral to modernist literature and later facilitated the emergence of postcolonial writing. This inquiry seeks to explain why some of modernism's leading figures, such as T.S. Eliot, Louis MacNeice, Stephen Spender, and Roy Fuller were enthusiastic readers of literature from former British colonies, much of it stridently anticolonial in outlook.
