"A timely reassessment of the fraught relationship cultural studies has had with the term 'modernism' amounting to a reevaluation of the place that both can occupy in discussions of cultural modernity, resting on a commonality or refrain of innovation, relativity, contingency, critique, and a pluralistic disciplinary methodology."--Peter Childs, University of Gloucestershire
For many scholars, cultural studies is viewed as a product of postmodern criticism and as the antithesis of modernism. In this brilliant work, Catherine Driscoll argues persuasively that we must view what we call cultural studies as a direct continuation of the innovations and concerns of modernism and the modernists.
In making her case, Driscoll provides a fresh take on arguments--some seemingly unresolvable--that pivot on modernism's desire for novelty. Defining modernity as a critical attitude rather than a time period, she describes the many things these ostensibly different fields of inquiry have in common and reveals why cultural studies must be viewed as a fundamentally modernist project.
Casting a wide net across the shared interests of modernism and cultural studies, including cinema, fiction, fashion, art, and popular music, Driscoll explores such themes as love and work, adolescence and everyday life, the significance of the everyday, the popular as a field of power, and the importance of representation to identity and experience in modernity.

About the Author:

Catherine Driscoll is Associate Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies at the University of Sydney. Her publications include the book Girls: Feminine Adolescence in Popular Culture and Cultural Theory, Modernist Cultural Studies, Teen Film: A Critical Introduction, and The Australian Country Girl: History, Image, Experience.

Review:

"a superb example of the ways cultural studies practices and preoccupations have invigorated modernist studies." -- Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History

"goes further than anyone else around in historicizing the emergence and directions of new modernist studies. . . . Driscoll usefully defines modernism as modernity channelled as an ongoing, critical happening and contemporary critical procedure" -- Aaron Jaffe, Year's Work in English Studies

"The chapters are constellations of disparate material that offer vivid and disquieting images of modernity.... By grasping the modernist conjuncture as a deep condition of gendering affect, Driscoll's book is profoundly, productively and constitutionally feminist in orientation" -- Ben Highmore, New Formations
