Modernist Commons

Welcome to Modernist Commons, a digital repository of source materials, collection of critical editions, and suite of editing tools. Managed by Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC), this site has been designed to allow users to ingest images, process texts with optical character recognition software, perform markup on transcriptions and images, append critical apparatuses, collate multiple versions, and display editions in a multimedia viewer. The platform integrates a number of open-source digital tools (Islandora, CWRC Writer, Shared Canvas, Calliope, CollateX). 

For more information about the Modernist Commons, or to request permission to access the editing tools to produce your own critical editions, please contact us at
