Female editors and their important roles shaping modernist texts are often overlooked by scholars. This panel presentation seeks to recover several important female editors of little magazines, books, fliers, zines, etc in the U.S. and abroad. Papers discussing minority women are especially welcome, as are papers discussing female editors who were also artists, poets, writers, etc. Because of the important recovery aspect of this panel presentation, it is hoped that presenters will provide conference attendees with supplementary materials, in the form of handouts or PowerPoint presentations, to situate these foundational female editors for the audience.
