Affirmations: of the modern is now the official journal of the AMSN!

An open-access journal, Affirmations: of the modern aims to stir up modernist studies by drawing attention to that which has been, and remains, peripheral, overlooked, or unseen. Embracing our Antipodean vantage point, the journal seeks to build upon recent developments in the field that have troubled modernism’s too-settled histories and its centre-periphery relations. Whether through focusing on previously overlooked works or forms of modernist literature, art, and culture; examining the less-discussed sites, iterations, and experiences of modernity; or taking innovative approaches to modernism’s more well-known figures, texts, and themes, Affirmations seeks scholarship that challenges us to look at the field from new theoretical, critical, disciplinary, and interdisciplinary perspectives. While international in scope and contribution, Affirmations has a particular commitment to fostering modernist scholarship related to the Asia-Pacific region, and to promoting work by both established and emerging scholars in the region.
