The Modernist Literature and Economic Theory Project is being developed by Tudor Balinisteanu (PhD English Literature).
This project aims to connect modernist texts with economic concepts in transnational perspective. It responds to a need to reassess the contribution of literature to our interconnected forms of social and material life. Once fully developed, it will provide resources to scholars interested in exploring the connection between literature and economic materialism. On the one hand, the project invites reflection on literature as a market form itself; on the other it invites explorations of the ways in which literature engenders forms of social performativity and agency that contribute materially to society, and can therefore be studied in the framework of economic theory.
Contributions to the site are invited, and will be acknowledged on the page where they are placed.
