From Britain’s Downton Abbey and Dancing on the Edge to Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, the Jazz Age’s presence in recent popular culture has been striking and pervasive. This volume not only deepens the reader’s understanding of this iconic period, but also allows a better comprehension of its persistent presence “in our time.” Situating well-known Jazz Age writers such as Langston Hughes in new contexts while revealing the contributions of lesser-known figures such as Fannie Hurst, Looking Back at the Jazz Age brings together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars who draw on a wide range of analytical tools and critical methods, including New Historicism, biography, philosophy, queer theory, psychoanalytical theory, geography, music theory, film studies, and urban studies.

The volume includes provocative new readings of the flapper, an intricate examination of the intersections between literature and music, as well as some reflections on the twenty first century’s preoccupation with the Jazz Age. Building on recent scholarship and suggesting avenues for further research, this collection will be of interest to scholars and students in American literature, American history, American studies, cultural studies, and film studies.
