Hey, remember the (Yellow) Nineties?

I’m excited to be joining Ryerson University’s Centre for Digital Humanities as a Research Assistant on the Yellow Nineties Project!

This project, run by Professor Lorraine Janzen Kooistra, is creating a resource for scholars (and everyone else) to gain access to the early arts and literary magazines of the 1890s, first and foremost of which was titled The Yellow Book, hence the project title.

I will be spending a semester helping to digitize The Dial: a very eclectic journal published only five times between 1889-1897.

If you like little magazines the way I do, then please come and scour through the website to see the current digital editions and scholarly information that’s put up on the site so far.
