Rereading 1930s culture. Edited by Bill Mullen and Sherry Lee Linkon
Radical Revisions brings together some of the best and most exciting recent work on the literature and popular culture of the 1930s. Contributors examine a wide range of texts, from classics such as Tillie Olsen's Yonnondio to popular icons such as King Kong and largely ignored novels such as Josephine Herbst's The Wedding. Drawing on recent theories of gender, class, race, ethnicity, and representation, they reexamine texts previously brushed aside as artistically uninteresting or too popular to be taken seriously.
“This site takes its impetus, its hope, from those pushing back collectively against all varieties of exploitation and oppression. It is motivated especially by exceptional struggles around the world to which its creator has been a part: anti-capitalist fights for socialism; the struggle for a Free Palestine and BDS; anti-racism; the fight against creeping fascism.”
