Modern Magazines Project Canada is a collaborative initiative that brings together scholars, magazine professionals, and digitization specialists with the goal of building an international and interdisciplinary network for the study and promotion of periodicals. The project—beginning with the invite-only “Magazines and/as Media” workshop, followed by the “Canadian Magazines: Past, Present, Future” public symposium—will build toward long-term partnerships and collaborations focused on magazines and the digital turn.
The Modern Magazines Project Canada is organized by Hannah McGregor, postdoctoral fellow in the University of Alberta’s Department of English and Film Studies; Faye Hammill, Professor of English at the University of Strathclyde; and Paul Hjartarson, Professor Emeritus in the Department of English and Film Studies at the University of Alberta.
