Pressestimmen"Bright, disquieting, and energetic, these essays bring back to life the complex political and artistic provocations of their modernisms. Badly needed."--Rachel Bowlby, author of Carried Away: The Invention of Modern Shopping "I envision Bad Modernisms as a linchpin in the 'new modernist studies.' This sprightly, compelling volume gives us a map for that conversation; offers a guide to the tangled pathways of history, criticism, and cultural practice that converge in modernist studies; and reveals the astonishingly ample, indeed global, playing field of the discourse of modernism."--Jennifer Wicke, author of Advertising Fictions: Literature, Advertisement, and Social Reading
