Welcome to The Modernist Archives Publishing Project (MAPP), a critical digital archive of early twentieth-century publishers, beginning with Leonard and Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press (est. 1917). We currently have over 2000 artifacts on the site, including one-of-a-kind dust jackets, author and publisher correspondences, readers’ reports, printing and production papers, illustrations, and born digital biographies of people and presses.  We are actively adding more content, and soliciting new materials, as MAPP grows. For a detailed description of our team origins, intellectual history and critical methodology, digital infrastructure, and aspirations for the site, please check out our collaborative book, Scholarly Adventures in Digital Humanities: The Making of the Modernist Archives Publishing Project (Palgrave 2017).

On Wednesday, July 17, 2019, we're excited to be hosting at Stanford University a companion conference to the June conference held at Reading University, on Women/Gender Minorities in Print/Publishing in the 20th Century.  This conference coincides with the annual MAPP group meeting and celebrates MAPP's new phase of development for which we have won a second round of funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) in the form of an Insight Grant (2018-2023).
