Feeling modern : the eccentricities of public life

Author: Justus Nieland
Publisher: Urbana : University of Illinois Press, ©2008.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : State or province government publication : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This study combines theories of public sphere, cinema, visual culture and affect. While modernist feeling is often described either as a reservoir of romantic inwardness or as an inhuman hostility to sentiment, Nieland argues that modernists championed feelings as primarily public, rather than as private property of the self.
