Abstract:

The essays in "Virgin Microbe" foreground thematic issues and advance recent theoretical agendas, such as the study of identity construction and the relationship between the avant-garde and mass culture, rather than focusing on biographies of individual Dadaists or centers of Dada activity. The authors represent a wider spectrum of disciplines and a broader international perspective than other recent collections on Dada. Ambitious in terms of contemporary academic interests, "Virgin Microbe" draws on a rich spectrum of intellectual traditions and contexts, prioritizing Dada's metaphysical enquiries and its complicated connection to modernity.
