New review in Studies in the Novel

publications, modernism

My double review of two provocative modernist studies books is now out in Studies in the Novel 43, no. 2. I discuss Elizabeth Outka’s Consuming Traditions and Enda Duffy’s The Speed Handbook. Reading the two together gave me a chance to reflect on what you might call the Standard Model of modernist studies. Lots of good work happens within the Model, but is it time for a new paradigm?
