Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC) Bulletin

Fall 2010

Visit us online at http://editingmodernism.ca 

We are pleased to introduce to you the EMiC project and its significant 
research and professional development opportunities. EMiC is a 
SSHRC-funded research initiative that facilitates collaboration among 
researchers and institutions from regions all across Canada and from the 
UK, France, Belgium, New Zealand, and the US.

We produce new print and digital editions of Canadian modernist texts 
from the early to mid-twentieth century, as well as organize 
conferences, special issues of journals, and collections of essays on 
topics related to the mandate of the project. Researchers who join this 
new community of scholars are free to apply through EMiC for publication 
subventions and research assistants for their work related to Canadian 
modernism, and are invited to participate in our summer institutes on 
digital editing and textual editing.

Students take note! EMiC offers stipend funding at the MA ($12, 000 per 
year) and PhD ($15, 000 per year) levels, Postdoctoral Fellowships ($31, 
500 per year for 2 years), and also provides resources for training and 
networking at our summer institutes, workshops, and conferences.

Take advantage of EMiC

EMiC's wide variety of funding and research opportunities is open to 
all new and established scholars working on topics relevant to the 
mandate of the project. We would like to invite you to join our growing 
network of scholars and students by participating in some of the 
upcoming events and funding opportunities.
