Organisational unit: Research Grouping
Led by Dr Dorothy Price, the Transnational Modernisms Research Cluster has core research strengths in the study of British, German and Soviet art and visual culture across national and international boundaries.
Researchers within the group are concerned with the study of cultural dialogues and visual exchange within and across nation states and national borders. Of particular interest is the dynamic relationship between the hegemonic constructions of national identities and the conflicting concerns of the international avant-garde.
Current research focuses on Internationalism and Cultural Exchange in Britain between 1870-1918; the impact and legacies of German Expressionism and Weimar culture; the visual culture of sport and the Olympic Games in the twentieth century and the transnational relationships between art and music.
