The Literatures and Languages Library is running a trial of the Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism until November 16, 2018.
The Encyclopedia of Modernism has 1,900 articles from experts in the field, and over 100 images. The General Editor, Professor Stephen Ross (former President of the Modernist Studies Association), and over 1500 contributors worked to build a comprehensive resource on modernism.
Content is cross-referenced and covers eight key subject areas (Literature, Architecture, Visual Arts, Music, Dance, Theatre, Film, and Intellectual Currents). Articles on people include a biography and explanation of theories, a list of works, and further reading. Overviews of concepts include an abstract, definitions and history of the concept or term, related terms and concepts, major periods, selected manifestos, and further reading.
The advanced search option allows researchers to limit searches by subject and use Boolean operators (and shortcuts like +, -, and &).
The browse options allow researchers to peruse subjects (the eight mentioned above), movements (including Abstract Expressionism, Bauhaus, Cubism, Dada, Expressionism, Futurism, Montage, and Social Realism), and places (Modernism in Africa, Asia, and more).
