ModNets

Modernist Networks, a federation of digital projects in the field of modernist literary and cultural studies, was officially launched at the 2015 MSA conference in Boston. ModNets provides a vetting community for digital modernist scholarship and a technological infrastructure to support access to scholarship on modernist literature and culture. Please check out the site at http://www.modnets.org!

 

We are now actively seeking digital projects to join our federation. For information on our editorial board, our peer review process, and the kinds of projects we are looking for, see http://www.modnets.org/about/what-is-ModNets, or contact our project manager, Nikolaus Wasmoen, at pm@modnets.org.

Wish List for Open-Access Modernist Source Text Anthology

A recent exchange on the Modernist Studies Association listserv discussed the idea of developing a creative commons site where scholars and teachers working in the field could access primary texts and links (to materials that are not under copyright).

 

Shawna Ross has put up a wish-list on GoogleDocs, to which all Modernists are invited to contribute. Please add to the list any items you would like to see as part of an open-access sourcebook for modernism. The list focuses on primary materials, but there is a section at the end of the document for suggested secondary texts.

 

Aside from being an interesting exercise in spontaneous field-mapping, this will assist in making the repository a reality in the very short term.
