Culture Writing

Literature and Anthropology in the Midcentury Atlantic World

Tim Watson

Modernist Literature and Culture

  • Emphasizes an earlier time period—the 1950s—for the "literary turn" in anthropology
  • Demonstrates how writers and anthropologists continued their collaborations and conversations after the period of high modernism
  • Highlights the importance of the 1950s in cultural and intellectual history as a moment of dynamic transformation in its own right
  • Analyzes British, US, French, African, and Caribbean writers and intellectuals in a transatlantic, multilingual cultural history
