British Fiction and Cross-Cultural Encounters Book Description:

British Fiction and Cross-Cultural Encounters reveals that British modernists read widely in anthropology and ethnography, conducted their own “fieldwork,” and thematized the challenges of cultural encounters in their fiction. By bringing canonical and popular fiction together with travel writing, ethnographic monographs, and other anthropological texts, this interdisciplinary study demonstrates how ethnographic ideas and methods not only permeated the subject matter of literary modernism, but also helped stimulate many of its most important aesthetic innovations.
