The Midlands Modernist Network is an academic consortium comprised of students and researchers working on modernism at institutions in Nottingham, Birmingham, Derby, Leicester, Coventry, Loughborough and the surrounding area. We welcome all interested, whether you are based in the Midlands yourself, or want to join a group of likeminded researchers invested in modernist scholarship.

The MMN hosts a monthly reading group at the University of Birmingham, discussing new journal articles, books and discoveries in the field, as well as an annual conference. We aim to provide a space which can spark discussion, provoke debate and allow students to make new friends in an open, encouraging environment. You can join us on Facebook or email us at midlandsmodernistnetwork@gmail.com. In the interest of accessibility, the MMN provides small travel grants to interested students. To find out more about applying for a grant, please do email us, whether you have attended the network before or this is your first time.
