Thesis Title: Modernist Magazines, Editing Networks and Short Fiction


Thesis Description:


My work focuses on the Modernist Magazines in the early twentieth century, with a particular interest in developing an understanding of the editorial negotiations relating to the agendas or manifestos of magazines and the short fiction carried by those magazines. The project examines both the artistic and commercial realities of magazine editorship and production to highlight significant interventions in editorial policy, whether it be a result of those market forces, artistic judgement or the influence of the wider literary network.
