Mapping Modernities

By: Emily Mc Ginn  

This project uses network analysis to expand the modernist literary canon beyond an anglo-centric perspective. It graphs the data extracted from Sturgis E Leavitt's 1960 index Revistas hispanoamericanas: Indice bibliografico 1843-1935 alongside the data from the Modernist Journals Project to examine the routes of intellectual exchange. The relations among hundreds of contributors to these periodicals, trace a plurality of simultaneous modernities larger than any single language or nation. Using two datasets in different languages also exposes the bias toward English not only in the literary canon, but also in the tools of the digital humanities.
