Modernism/modernity is a quarterly peer-reviewed academic journal established in 1994 by Lawrence Rainey and Robert van Hallberg. It covers methodological, archival, and theoretical approaches to modernist studies in the period from about 1860 to the mid-twentieth century. Since 2001 it has been the official publication of the Modernist Studies Association, and September issues occasionally feature papers from their annual conference. As of February 2014, the journal will operate with two editorial offices: a rotating MSA office and a permanent office at the University of York. It is published quarterly in January, April, September, and November by Johns Hopkins University Press. The journal is also available in digital form through library databases such as Project Muse.
Each issue includes a section of thematic essays, multi-work review essays, individual book reviews, and a list of "recent books of interest." The journal occasionally has guest-edited or special issues, with a series of related essays on one topic. The journal has also launched an "Out of the Archives" series, in which out-of-print and neglected works of modernism are reintroduced to its readership.
The current editors-in-chief are Ann Ardis (University of Delaware) and Lawrence Rainey (University of York). Previous editors include Cassandra Laity (Drew University) and Jeffrey Schnapp (Harvard University).
