MVP Wins Major SSHRC Grant
The Modernist Versions Project (MVP) is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a 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: Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC), Nineteenth-Century Scholarship Online (NINES), the Electronic and Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) at UVic, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Islandora/DiscoveryGarden , and the Modernist Journals Project (MJP).
It will also allow the MVP to pursue further formal partnerships with its informal collaborators, such as the Beinecke Library 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 to 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.
