Summary

The relationships between modernity and modernism, modernism and the historical avant-garde, modernism and postmodernism, and postmodernism and the historical avant-garde have been discussed by scholars working in a number of disciplines. Sheppard invigorates these debates by identifying Data as a link that allows the integration of such movements, establishing connections among Dada, modernity, modernism, and postmodernism that have been suggested but never fully explored. With its combination of previously published and new essays and its perspective on the theoretical avantgarde -- modernism debate in the United States, Modernism -- Dada -- Postmodernism gives both the specialist and the general reader excellent insight into European scholarly discourse on this hotly debated subject.
