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 4000 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).

Welcome to our August post from MAPP!  I'll begin recursively, taking us back two months.  June offered up one of the annual delights for us as Woolf scholars: the 25th Annual Virginia Woolf Conference organized by the supremely hospitable and well-organized Julie Vandivere and held this year at Bloomsburg University in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, a beautiful, quintessentially 'leafy-green' college campus in rural Pennsylvania where we felt warmly welcomed not only by the university, but also the entire town (never before has a downtown cinema welcomed conference goers by name and with Woolf's own inimitable visage in blinking bright lights).   206 speakers attended, from 5 continents, and 14 countries.  4 of the 6 MAPP team members (Alice, Elizabeth, Helen, and Nicola) were delighted to have the chance to meet in situ again after a year of Google Hang-Outs.

We’ve had a busy past few months here at MAPP attending conferences and workshops on both sides of the Atlantic. I’ll do a quick round-up here of the papers we’ve given and the discussions we’ve enjoyed at each of these events.
