    Modernist Journals Project

    The MJP is a multi-faceted project that studies modernism and its rise in the English-speaking world, with periodical literature as its central concern. The project has a chronological range of 1890 to 1922 and a geographical range that includes wherever English language periodicals were published. The MJP also offers a range of genres that extends to the digital publication of books directly connected to modernist periodicals and other supporting materials for periodical study.
