Modernist Women Race Nation re-signifies the cultural and political meanings of the Circum-Atlantic region in relation to the modernist period. A particular concern lies with feminist and post-colonial issues. Una Marson, Amy Ashwood Garvey, Catherine Carswell, Claude McKay, Nancy Cunard, Zora Neale Hurston, Dorothy West and Albinia Catherine McKay are among the notable figures peopling the discussion. Thus, the collection engages in a crucial re-mapping from the geographical points of observation of the Caribbean, the USA, Scotland, Africa and Europe.
