> Dear Modernist Colleagues,
> You may be interested in engaging with a just-published special issue of
> the online journal /Literature Compass/ devoted to the /Oxford Handbook
> of Global Modernisms/ edited by Mark Wollaeger with Matt Eatough.
> /Literature Compass/ Chief Editor, Regenia Gagnier, has launched the
> journal's "Global Circulation Project" as a special, ongoing department
> of the journal, and the special issue on /Global Modernisms/ is part of
> that project.  For this issue, she and I asked a number of comparative
> literature, postcolonial, and modernist scholars to read and comment on
> the Oxford /Global Modernisms/ collection. *Please consider joining this
> online project and conversation, and* *please do forward this message to
> any listservs or communities you think would be interested. *
> We invite you not only to read but also to join the conversation. That
> is, in addition to simply publishing the contributors' responses to the
> collection, /Literature Compass/ invites readers who have read (at least
> some of) the /Global Modernisms /collection to post their comments,
> engaging with the special-issue responses specifically, as well as with
> the collection. *So as to give some shape to the discussion, each week
> one of the response-essays will be featured, beginning  Monday October
> 1st, with Supriya Chaudhuri's  "Translation and World Literature." *
> Wiley-Blackwell has agreed to make access to the essays and blog
> conversation free and open to the public, a reflection of their
> excitement about the conversation that they hope to foster.

> discussion as well as /responses from Professors Supriya Chaudhuri,
> Ellleke Boehmer, Steven Yao, Paul Young, Ning Wang, and Katie

> dialogue specifically on Professor Chaudhuri's essay  [
