Welcome Note from our General Editor
A welcome note from our General Editor, Professor Stephen Ross (Past-President of the Modernist Studies Association)
As General Editor I'd like to welcome you to the Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism. Over 1,500 contributors have worked hard to bring you the most comprehensive resource on modernism – across the arts and around the world.
This interdisciplinary resource covers Dance, Film, Literature, Visual Arts, Architecture and Design, Drama/Theatre/Performance, Music, and Intellectual Currents. We have sought out experts in each of these fields from every region of the world. Detailed search and browse functions enable discoveries across and between disciplines movements and places, and articles are enhanced with images where relevant.
The summaries of all articles are available as free content, and we are constantly adding more material. Watch for regular updates as REM continues to expand with new entries, expansions of existing entries, and more powerful tools for navigating and exploring the content.
So, please, take a look around, test out the features, and let us know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.
