This article sums up the various themes and arguments of this book. It argues that conversation in English language is positioned and shaped by the speaker's particular place in culture, and in the present moment of a long history. Many of the geomodernists discussed in this collection launched that work. The discussion argues for a need to move away from a Eurocentric global history that impoverishes accounts of global modernisms. The fraught global interconnectedness among geomodernists and across empires reflects a condition that is both deeply ancient and strikingly contemporary, an old dialectic, which, however, was dramatically intensified in the early twentieth century.

Keywords: English language; geomodernists; Eurocentric global history; global modernisms; global interconnectedness
