A Transatlantic Dialogue: the Mexican Revista Moderna and its Relations with the German Magazine Jugend and the Mercure de France (1898-1911)

 


Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Susanne Klengel (FU Berlin)


 

The project of my thesis focuses on Revista Moderna (1898-1911), Mexican’s foremost literary and cultural journal of the late Nineteenth Century and of the early Twentieth century. My main aim is concerned with the problem of reading and interpreting the content of this journal, which is a fusion of fiction, poetry, essay, philosophy, plastic, history and social commentary, in dialogue with its European counterparts such as the German magazine Jugend (1896-1940). Both journals found a model in the French magazine Mercure de France (1890-1933).

 

This research is divided in two parts. To begin with, I will discuss the process of cultural and editorial politics of the Revista Moderna as well as the set of a literary Canon by the group of Mexican writers. Some of them had cultural links with the German magazine Jugend and the French magazine Mercure de France. Secondly, I will discuss the initiative of the Revista Moderna to be part of the Western criticism in order to build a proper global 'modernity' from Mexico.
