One-Day Conference: Women/Gender Minorities in Print, Stanford 17 July 2019

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).  

Alice & Anna Teleconference with Purdue

Tomorrow, February 19, MAPP co-founder Alice Staveley and MAPP Project Manager, Anna Mukamal, are excited to be joining Matthew Hannah's graduate DH course at Purdue University to talk about DH project design, challenges and opportunies in DH work, and what it's like for a graduate student to become involved in DH initiatives as part of her doctoral education.  All part of MAPP's continuing outreach to innovative pedagogical experiments in the discipline across the nation.

Virginia Woolf and the World of Books

And in more MAPP related publications, we're happy to announce the publication of Virginia Woolf and the World of Books, edited by Nicola Wilson and Claire Battershill.  A curated selection of papers inspired by last year's Virginia Woolf Conference at the University of Reading, this volume showcases new scholarship on the interventions of book history and material culture into Woolf studies.

Modernist Archives and the State of the Discipline: MAPP in the News

At MAPP, we invest a lot of intense, purposeful, and rewarding group effort thinking about how literary theory and digital methodology interact in the context of shifting disciplinary pressures within modernist studies and academic humanities in general. We are always asking ourselves how archival theory and digital praxis reinforce one another, while remaining attentive to and engaging the productive tension between theory and praxis in the actual making of MAPP.   

Woolf’s Photo Albums Online: Viewing the Photographic Archive (or Yeats: Now You See Him; Now You Don’t)

We were recently excited to learn that Harvard University has put online one complete volume of the six photographic family albums of Virginia Woolf now housed at Harvard’s Houghton Library. This beautifully ‘flippable’ complete album was blogged about on Open Culture; you can view it in full here.

Anatomizing Hands and Anonymous Labor

 

The hand must have trembled. The regular dip of the capital J turned slightly, yet noticeably, to the left as if by some interruption. I had no idea what might have startled the writer, but my mind took to creatively filling the gaps. A mother of three, she must have been deprived of sleep by a particularly late night reading to the kids about the professional horse races she had loved as a child; startled by the sudden entrance of the Welsh bagman, her pen had slipped creating, for my post-millennial eyes, that lopsided enigmatic “J”.

Sex in the City, The Hogarth Press, and Jhumpa Lahiri

You might wonder what these three names have in common.  For MAPP, quite a lot. It was widely reported last fall that Sarah Jessica Parker, former star of the HBO hit Sex in the City, and now widely known by her initials SJP, has been commissioned an editorial director of an eponymous series within the Hogarth imprint. Random House resurrected The Hogarth Press imprint in 2012 in homage to the Woolfs’ publishing house.
