Modernist Journals Project (MJP)

The Modernist Journals Project (MJP), sponsored by Brown University and the University of Tulsa, has the goal of digitizing English language publications, especially periodicals, important in the rise of modernism during the period 1890 to 1922. “We end at 1922 for both intellectual and practical reasons: the practical reason is that copyright becomes an issue with publications from 1923 onward; the intellectual reason is that most scholars consider modernism to be fully fledged in 1922, a date marked by the publication of James Joyce's Ulysses and T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land.”

The journals already digitized include:

  1. Blast
  2. The Blue Review
  3. Coterie
  4. Dana
  5. The English Review
  6. The New Age
  7. The Owl
  8. Le Petit Journal des Réfusées
  9. Poetry
  10. Rhythm
  11. The Tyro
  12. Wheels

The project has also made available the full-text of a number of relevant books and essays. There is also an extensive database of biographies.
