Contents:
“Translocated Modernisms focuses on multiple generations and communities of expatriates from modernism’s global peripheries – chiefly, but not exclusively, from Canada – traveling to and through Paris in the early to mid-twentieth century. The collection retraces the steps of modernists who stayed there such as Brion Gysin and Mavis Gallant, who returned home, such as Morley Callaghan, John Glassco, David Silverberg, and Sheila Watson, and who translated and dislocated cultural practices – such as Katherine Mansfield, Malcolm Lowry, Wyndham Lewis, and Roy K. Kiyooka – across oceans and continents.” (Book Cover)
