Abstract imageThe Centre for Modernism Studies in Australia (CMSA) seeks to foster collaborative grant applications, here and abroad, between researchers in the various disciplinary fields covered by its activities: literary studies, film studies, cultural studies, theatre and performance, philosophy, architecture, music, and visual arts.

CMSA is an official 'sister institute' to the Centre of Modernist Studies at the University of Sussex. We are currently devising a comprehensive structure for exchange and collaboration between UNSW and Sussex. The Centre is also a regional hub for the activities of the Australian Modernist Studies Network. It is envisaged that the Network and the Centre will develop a synergistic set of relationships to encourage the study of Modernism in Australia. The Centre is also developing collaborative links with the Modernist Studies Association and the British Association of Modernist Studies.
