Paris, Harlem and the Avant-Garde

edited by Fionnghuala Sweeney and Kate Marsh

Published by Edinburgh University Press

This book stretches and challenges current canonical configurations of modernism by considering the centrality of black artists, writers and intellectuals as core presences in the development of a modernist avant-garde; and by interrogating 'blackness' as an aesthetic and political category at critical moments during the twentieth century.
