For many scholars, cultural studies are viewed as a product of postmodern criticism and as the antithesis of modernism. This book argues that we must view what we call cultural studies as a direct continuation of the innovations and concerns of modernism and the modernists. It provides a fresh take on arguments — some seemingly unresolvable — that pivot on modernism's desire for novelty. Defining modernity as a critical attitude rather than a time period, it describes the many things these ostensibly different fields of inquiry have in common and reveals why cultural studies must be viewed as a fundamentally modernist project. Casting a wide net across the shared interests of modernism and cultural studies, including cinema, fiction, fashion, art, and popular music, the book explores such themes as love and work, adolescence and everyday life, the significance of the everyday, the popular as a field of power, and the importance of representation to identity and experience in modernity.
