CFP: Cluster on collaboration in modernism, Modernism/modernity Print Plus

By Annika Forkert from MUSIC-SINCE-1900 List. Published on Oct 02, 2017.

Apologies for cross-posting****Open call for contributions****

But research into other twentieth-century arts frequently concentrates on particular modernist artefacts [...]
