Abstract

Contemporary scholarship in New Modernist Studies has significantly changed our understandings of the organizing terms of the field—modernity, modern, modernist—and dramatically expanded the contexts in which they are debated. Thanks to interventions by scholars taking new approaches and adopting new critical frameworks, we now speak of multiple modernisms and modernities taking place in multiple locations across both "high" and popular forms. American Indian literature, however, remains for the most part absent from this new scholarship. This essay comes to terms with that absence and begins the process of situating American Indians as central—rather than peripheral—figures in these conversations.
