Editing Modernism in Canada

Editing Modernism in Canada

emicEditing Modernism in Canada (EMiC) supports collaboration, training, and renewed critical and digital engagement with Canadian modernisms. Funded by a SSHRC Strategic Knowledge Cluster grant, the project has expanded from tis roots at Dalhousie University to include researchers from UK, Belgium, France, the United States, and across Canada.

The project has three principal aims:

  • to coordinate editorial initiatives undertaken by its participants and develop new ways to network individual projects and researchers
  • to train students and new scholars using experiential-learning pedagogies
  • to facilitate the international dissemination of our collaborative research and editorial work in both print and digital media, and
  • to develop sustained relationships among universities, publishers, the media, public libraries, and non-profit cultural organizations (book clubs, reading groups, reading series, literary festivals) that will contribute to a public literary culture and ensure that Canadian modernism becomes an ongoing part of literary discourse in Canada.

EMiC is working with Islandora to create a Digital Humanities Sprout, which will ultimately be interoperable with the CWRC environment. To learn more about EMiC, visit the website. The EMiC blog is also an active site of discussion around digital humanities, critical theory and practice, and cultural production in Canada.
