Abstract

Abstract:

Mark S. Morrisson argues that the past few decades of scholarship on modernism, science, and technology show the highly fertile ground of interdisciplinary fields to both cultivate innovation and invigorate convention. Capturing the creative and sometimes contentious or even destructive emergence of modernism, modernist studies scholars such as Morrisson have showcased the concerns and methods that animate research in modernism, science, and technology. The book makes a powerful argument for the value of shifting paradigms within modernism studies, surveying the mutually informing relationships among science, technology, and literature that illuminate the writings of authors from H.G Wells and Gertrude Stein to James Joyce and Virginia Woolf. It broadens our understanding of key scientific concepts and their implications for the study of modernist literature.
