Modernist Network Cymru (MONC) is a new national modernist studies network. Inspired by its sister organisation the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies, the network aims to bring together scholars and professionals working on modernism in Wales to encourage better collaboration and communication. The group includes, but is not limited to, the study of Welsh modernism. In order to be as inclusive as possible, we define modernism broadly as literary, artistic, musical and cultural responses to modernity, predominately (but not exclusively) in the first half of the twentieth century. We are an interdisciplinary network and welcome both members who work on ‘High Modernism’ as it is traditionally defined and those who work on modern popular culture, the middlebrow, or conceptions of modernity more generally.

Post is MoMA’s online resource devoted to art and the history of modernism in a global context. In particular, post considers how transnational networks have influenced artistic production and presents and contextualizes specific practices that remain little known outside their countries of origin. Post is the public face of Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives (C-MAP), a cross-departmental research project launched at MoMA in 2009 to expand the reading of art history beyond the lineages of Western European and North American art.

Digitized books belonging to the Getty Research Institute's extensive holdings on Russian modernism. The GRI became a leading repository in this field with the acquisition in 1988 of a collection of hundreds of Russian modernist books and periodicals from the Parisian collector Marc-Martin Malburet. Since that time, significant acquisitions have been made both in Russian and Soviet books and in archival collections. In addition to the Kandinsky Papers, acquired in 1985, the GRI owns a major archive containing El Lissitzky's letters to his wife Sophie Küppers and photographs of his exhibition designs; the VKhUTEMAS archive of faculty and student work; and a collection of Soviet photographs from 1918.
