Decorating Dissidence: Feminism, Modernism and the Arts will approach modernism as a longue durée to explore the enduring importance of female contribution to the arts as political protest throughout the twentieth century to now. We aim to intervene in contemporary, interdisciplinary debates concerning the boundaries of modernism and the direction of feminist modernist studies.
