The Editing Modernism in Canada project, funded by a Strategic Knowledge  
Cluster grant (2008-15) from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research  
Council, invites applications to its 2010 competition for master's and  
doctoral stipends. Current graduate fellows are working on projects such  
as the print and digital editions in the Collected Works of P.K. Page,  
the Sheila Watson and Wilfred Watson digital archives, the selected  
letters of New Brunswick modernists, a critically edited anthology of  
Canadian political and literary manifestoes, and the EMiC digital  
repository.  In addition, EMiC graduate fellows are involved in the  
production of print and digital editions of works by Ted Allan, Sol  
Allen, Carroll Aikins, Marius Barbeau, Ernest Buckler, Fred Cogswell,  
Sui Sin Far/Edith Eaton, Hugh Garner, Dorothy Livesay, Malcolm Lowry,  
Hugh MacLennan, Martha Ostenso, F.R. Scott, Elizabeth Smart, Miriam  
Waddington, Anne Wilkinson, and the collaboratively written play Eight  
Men Speak.

EMiC offers one-year stipends of CDN $12,000 (MA) or $15,000 (PhD) to  
graduate students who are registered in, or entering, an MA or PhD  
program at one of the EMiC partner universities and who are engaged in  
research relevant to the project's mandate: to produce critically edited  
texts by modernist Canadian authors. Successful applicants are strongly  
encouraged to seek matching funds from their universities and external  
funding from granting agencies. 

In offering these stipends, EMiC interprets its mandate in the broadest  
possible terms: that is, the stipends are not limited to masters and  
doctoral students involved in work on an EMiC print or electronic  
edition; on the contrary, they are open to any student engaged in  
masters or doctoral research relevant to one or more of the three  
components of this project: literary modernism, scholarly editing, and  
the digital humanities. While EMiC interprets its mandate in the  
broadest possible terms, preference will be given to research projects  
most directly relevant to the task of producing critically edited texts  
by modernist Canadian authors.  

Applicants proposing print or electronic editions of modernist texts  
should indicate whether they have obtained written permission from the  
estate. EMiC will require proof of that permission before it can release  
funds to successful applicants.

Although the stipends are for a single year, doctoral students can  
reapply for a second award. Such re-applications by doctoral students  
are not automatic renewals; requests for renewals will be adjudicated in  
the same manner as, and in competition with, new applications. EMiC will  
neither entertain applications for a third doctoral stipend nor award  
funding to students beyond the fifth year of their program. 

EMiC will provide an allocation of $12,000 (MA) or $15,000 (PhD) to the  
partner universities at which successful applicants are registered. EMiC  
co-applicants and collaborators will be responsible for ensuring that  
those funds are administered in keeping with the guidelines established  
by their respective universities. 

MA and PhD students must be supervised by an EMiC co-applicant or  
collaborator and enrolled at or applying to an EMiC partner institution.  
Before submitting an application for funding, incoming students must  
secure commitments in principle from prospective supervisors and  
students already enrolled in a graduate program at an EMiC partner  
institution must obtain a supervisor. EMiC cannot fund students  
supervised by faculty members who are not themselves project  

Applications should be submitted via the online form available the  
project website: http://editingmodernism.ca/funding/ma-and-phd-stipends/

Application deadline: 30 March 2011

*4Humanities Stipends for International Correspondents:*

4Humanities is seeking up to three bilingual or multilingual graduate
students (or early-career researchers) from outside Australia, Canada, the
U.S., and the U.K. who would each receive an honorarium of 450 Canadian
dollars for contributing at least one online post per month for a term of
one year to the 4Humanities site (http://humanistica.ualberta.ca/).  The
posts will report on events, policies, statements, and issues relating to
the state of the humanities or advocacy for the humanities in the student's
or researcher's country.  Correspondents must be able to write their posts
bilingually, in the language of their country and also with an English

The 4Humanities initiative was started in November 2010 by the international
community of digital humanities scholars and educators to assist in advocacy
for the humanities.  See our mission statement:
http://humanistica.ualberta.ca/mission/  Our Web site posts news about the
crisis of the humanities in society, advocacy statements for the humanities,
"student voices" in support of the humanities, and digital and other
resources to assist in advocating for the humanities.  While the initiative
began with contributors from Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the
United States, it seeks to extend its scope and audience to other nations.

Sponsorship for these international correspondent positions is from the
Association for Computing in the Humanities (ACH), the Association for
Literary and Linguistic Computing (ALLC), and the Canadian Institute for
Research Computing in the Arts (CIRCA).  Honoraria will be disbursed through
the University of Alberta.

Please apply for the international correspondent positions by writing an
email describing yourself and your interests, and including a curriculum
vitae or short professional biography.  Applications should be addressed to
Prof. Alan Liu, Dept. of English, University of California, Santa Barbara (
ayliu at english.ucsb.edu), one of the coordinators of 4Humanities.  The
deadline for applications is February 28, 2011.
