Established in 2005, the Canada Research Chair Program in Modern Literature and Culture is housed in the Faculty of Arts at Ryerson University with links to the Graduate Programs in Literatures of Modernity and Communication and Culture, as well as to English, Image Arts, Fashion, and Digital Culture.

Our mandate is to research the literary and cultural production in the modernist era (from 1880 to 1940), to preserve and advance modernist women’s heritage and to promote modern Canadian heritage within an international context, and to advance our studies and outreach through digital culture innovations.

The MLCRC (Modern Literature & Culture Research Centre) is honoured to be featured in a video by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI).
