About EMiC
emic at dal.ca

EMiC is a SSHRC-funded strategic research cluster 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, workshops, special issues of journals, and collections of essays. The project’s mandate is primarily directed toward the production of critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors, but does not exclude figures from the international field who have demonstrable relationships to Canadian literature and its modernist literary cultures. Edited texts include poetry, fiction, drama, autobiography, correspondence, and non-fictional prose from the early to mid-twentieth century.
Explore our website. Contribute to our blog. Contact us about ideas for new projects. We invite you to join our community.

EMiC’s funding and research opportunities are open to all new and established scholars engaged in research relevant to one or more of the three components of this project: literary modernism, scholarly editing, and humanities computing. We would like to invite you to join our growing network of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, professors, publishers, and technologists by participating in our upcoming events and by taking advantage of our funding opportunities.

Researchers and institutional partners affiliated with this community of scholars can apply to EMiC for seed funding to support student research assistants and interns who work with them on editorial projects. Faculty participants as well as students and postdocs under their supervision are invited to participate in our summer institutes in digital editing and textual editing. 
Students take note! EMiC offers stipends at the MA ($12,000 per year) and PhD ($15,000 per year) levels, postdoctoral fellowships ($31,500 per year for two years), and also provides resources for travel and accommodations to attend our summer institutes, workshops, and conferences.
