Abstract

EDWARD TYERMAN University of California, Berkeley e t Th itle of this special issue of Cross-Currents , “Writing Revolution Across Northeast Asia,” announces a compelling conu fl ence of text and map. The articles presented here share a common concern with tracing the textual cir- culation of leftist culture in the early twentieth century across a circuit that linked Russia and the Soviet Union to Japan, Korea, and China. At the root of these investigations lies the question of what happens when transnational and internationalist ideologies (such as Marxism and anarchism) move from the political into the cultural sphere. Can we speak of “cultural internation- alism,” and how should we speak about it? How do ideas claiming a certain universality travel across different cultural regions with different historical How can we describe socialist culture of the early twentieth cen- legacies? tury in its transnational complexity and internationalist ambition while remaining true to the concrete dynamics of its embodiment in situated texts, discourses, and practices? This attempt to trace socialist culture as a transnational and transre - gional phenomenon perhaps inevitably encounters the question of how to think about space. e Th articles in this special issue share a common
