In early twentieth-century Europe and North America, journals and magazines played an important role in both literary and political life. Brown University and the University of Tulsa have teamed up to digitize many of these influential journals, including the short-lived Vorticist literary magazine BLAST, the NAACP's The Crisis, the muckraking McClure's Magazine, and Robert Graves's edited poetry magazine, The Owl. Visitors are invited to browse these publications by issue (the collection includes 26 journals as of this write-up) or conduct a text-search. In addition, the Modernist Journals Project offers a number of accompanying resources for literature and history scholars, teachers, and enthusiasts. In the MJP Lab, visitors can explore a variety of graphs, tables, and visualizations relating to specific journal entries. Another feature of this website is an extensive biographical database, which provides short snippets about various journal contributors. Those interested in situating this rich source collection may want to check out the Books and Essays sections for works about these journals, including historical and contemporary articles. Finally, educators can explore classroom assignments that utilize this collection in the Teaching with the MJP section.
