The Modernist Journals Project: The Crisis, The Egoist, The Little Review, Others

To support: Incorporating four early 20th-century American and British periodicals, "The Crisis," "The Egoist" (including its predecessors, "The Freewoman" and "The New Freewoman"), "The Little Review," and "Others," into a digital archive of modernist journals.

The Modernist Journals Project is proposing to digitize four culturally-significant magazines from the early 20th century: "The Crisis," "The Egoist" (including its predecessors, "The Freewoman" and "The New Freewoman"), "The Little Review," and "Others." The first of these journals is the official organ for the NAACP, edited by W. E. B. Du Bois; the last three are "little magazines" famous for publishing such authors as James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, and Marianne Moore. The digital editions we produce, amounting to 14,560 pages, will be the first for all of these rare journals, which will be made available to the public (without charge) on the MJP website (www.modjourn.org). Public access to these digital editions will also be enhanced by our enabling sophisticated searching of the journals (through OCR text conversion, TEI text encoding, and MODS cataloguing) and by our framing each journal with scholarly materials that will foreground its distinctive value.

Modernist Journals Project, Three Editions: "The English Review," "Scribner's," and "Poetry"

To support: Incorporating three early 20th-century periodicals, "The English Review," "Scribner's," and "Poetry: A Magazine of Verse," into a digital archive, the Modernist Journals Project.

The Modernist Journals Project, co-sponsored by Brown and the University of Tulsa, proposes to extend its thematic research collection of early twentieth-century periodicals with editions of The English Review, Scribner's Magazine, and Poetry Magazine. The MJP will collaborate with the libraries at Brown, Tulsa, Princeton, and the University of Chicago to produce these digital editions, using unbound copies of the original periodicals retaining advertising pages, which provide an important window onto the complex web of twentieth-century cultural formation but which have been stripped out of most bound volumes in libraries. The MJP will supplement these digital editions with extensive scholarly apparatus to aid students and researchers.
