Introducing the Global Modernities Blog

This blog project is affiliated with the Master’s programme Anglophone Modernities in Literature and Culture at the University of Potsdam and the Potsdam Postcolonial Chair of Global Modernities.

Blog posts discuss Anglophone literatures and cultures from around the globe, including the British Isles, the USA and Canada, Australia and the Pacific, South Asia, the Caribbean and parts of Africa. They propose a thorough understanding of modernity with a particular emphasis on the constitutive role of non-Western cultures in the formation of the modern world, as well as an in-depth engagement with cultural and literary theories of multiple modernities.
