The P.K. Page Estate, following PK’s own example, has provided unstinting support for all aspects of The Collected Works of P.K. Page. We are particularly indebted to Neal Irwin, a trustee of the Estate, in this regard.
The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council has provided:
- a Standard Research Grant in support of The Complete Poetry of P.K. Page
- a Standard Research Grant in support of the first phase of The Collected Works of P.K. Page
- a Post-Doctoral Fellowship, to Michèle Rackham Hall, for the production of a digital catalogue raisonné and a critical study of the art of P.K. Irwin
The Editing Modernism in Canada project (EMiC), a strategic knowledge cluster funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, has provided:
- funding for a pilot site of The Digital Page, designed Alan Stanley of Islandora/DiscoveryGarden, and for the development of text-image linking by Meagan Timney in collaboration with Martin Holmes, which were incorporated into an early, now decommissioned, iteration of the Modernist Commons. These were eventually replaced by the current version of The Digital Page incorporating the Digital Page Reader.
- storage space in the Modernist Commons for document images
- research assistantships for the poetry, Brazilian Journal, Mexican Journal and fiction
- an MA Fellowship to Emily Ballantyne for research on the poetry
- a PhD Fellowship to Christopher Doody for research on Brazilian Journal
- funding for Emily Ballantyne, Christopher Doody and Michèle Rackham Hall to attend the Textual Editing and Modernism in Canada course offered at Trent University
- funding for Emily Ballantyne, Christopher Doody, Zailig Pollock and Elizabeth Popham to each attend two or more Digital Editing and Modernism in Canada courses offered as part of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at University of Victoria
- funding for the digitization of literary manuscripts in the P.K. Page fonds at Library and Archives Canada, as a partner in the EMiC-LAC mass-digitization project
Library and Archives Canada has provided:
- staff and expertise for the digitization of literary manuscripts in the P.K. Page fonds as part of the EMiC-LAC mass-digitization project. Véronique Gendron, Senior Analyst and Émilie M. Walton, Analyst in the Integration, Planning and Accountability Division; and Alda Saizonou, Project Manager, Digitization Projects and Partnerships, were particularly helpful.
- advice, information and encouragement at all stages of The Collected Works of P.K. Page. Our debt of gratitude to Catherine Hobbs, Archivist, English Literary Archives, is particularly great.
The Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (CWRC), an infrastructure project funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation, has provided hosting for The Digital Page and advice on the requisite digital infrastructure. CWRC Project Leader Susan Brown’s advice on the design of The Digital Page and its integration into CWRC has been particularly helpful.
Trent University, as a partner of EMiC, has provided research assistants and office space.
