Editing Modernism in Canada

About Us

The Editing Modernism in Canada Project (EMiC) facilitates collaboration among researchers and institutions from regions across Canada and from the UK, France, Belgium, and the United States. The objectives of the EMiC project are:

  • 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.

The project’s mandate is primarily directed toward the production of critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors, but does not exclude figures from the international field who have demonstrable relationships to Canadian literature and its modernist literary cultures. Edited texts include poetry, fiction, drama, autobiography, correspondence, and non-fictional prose from the early to mid-twentieth century.

EMiC provides resources for training and networking graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, professors, publishers, and technologists at our summer institutes, workshops, and conferences. Available funding includes research assistantships, internships, MA and PhD stipends, and postdoctoral fellowships.
