MVP Wins Major SSHRC Grant
TheÂ Modernist Versions ProjectÂ (MVP) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded aÂ SSHRC Partnership Development Grant in the amount of $200,000 over three years. This grant funding will enable the MVP to continue to build strong relationships with its official partners, who already support the project with over $2 million in support:Â Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC),Â Nineteenth-Century Scholarship Online (NINES), theÂ Electronic and Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL)Â at UVic,Â Fairleigh Dickinson University, Islandora/DiscoveryGardenÂ , and theÂ Modernist Journals Project (MJP).
It will also allow the MVP to pursue further formal partnerships with its informal collaborators, such as the Beinecke LibraryÂ at Yale University. The funds will be primarily allocated to student training and post-doctoral fellows whose work will advance the MVP’s core objective toÂ advance the potential for comparative interpretations of modernist texts that exist in multiple forms by digitizing, collating, versioning, and visualizing them individually and in combination.
