This Dictionary is the first to gather, delineate and make accessible the literary, artistic, critical, cultural and political practices that we associate with Modernism. It provides a wide ranging resource both to the canon of 'High Modernism' and to current theoretical perspectives that have contributed to the renewed interest in Modernism and have lent it renewed range and critical rigour in the early twenty-first century. I contributed definitions of the following 13 terms: Art Nouveau; Cadavre Exquis; Entartete Kunst; Fauvism; Functionalism; Hysteria; Kitsch; Monochrome; Ornament; Readymade; Secession; Spiritualism; Surrealism.
