Modernist Constellations
New series from Clemson University Press
Call for Proposals

This new series from Clemson University Press, Modernist Constellations, reflects the global dimension of modernist studies, while making space for explorations of the modernist world maps and the current ‘planetary turn.’ The series takes into account the many temporalities, spaces, and forms of literary modernisms. Its aim is to explore modernism’s multiple artistic and intellectual contexts, while paying attention to the realities of expatriation, translation, and less structured forms of dissemination and influence. It encompasses Anglo-American and European literatures, as well as titles dealing with modernism’s ties to empire and decolonization.

We seek proposals for books in the form of monographs, edited collections, editions and anthologies that fulfill the aims of the Clemson Modernist Constellations series. We encourage proposals for titles examining lesser-known international movements that have shaped the literary and artistic forms associated with modernism including and beyond the Anglo-American and European iterations.

Proposals should be formatted according to Clemson’s house style ( and submitted to Clemson’s Director, John Morgenstern at
