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

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.
